Shortly after Mahler's death Alma met Kokoshka, some years her junior, and they engaged in a passionate relationship that was the talk of the town.
But Oskar was not just enfatuated, he was obsessed with Alma and wanted to monopolize her entirely, and Alma, having had enough of a dominant and restricting husband in Mahler, broke off the relationship after 3 years - and an abortion.
As Alma went on to the next man, Oskar in his grief had a lifesize puppet (!) looking like Alma made to comfort him and even made a painting showing himself with the puppet. He never really recovered, but he made some great paintings!
