The Artificial Woman is a musical based on the tempestuous, nearly three-year relationship between Austrian artist Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980) and Alma Mahler (1879-1964), a composer and widow of composer Gustav Mahler, and the break up that inspired the obsessed Kokoschka to commission an artist to create a life-sized Alma “doll.”
