The 30 Most Famous Muses in Art

6. Patti Smith

Relationship to: Robert Mapplethorpe

The story of Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe is a story of two misfits who found each other and created art that changed culture—Patti with music and Robert with photography. Even after Mapplethorpe realized he was a homosexual, the two were inseparable, inspiring each other in the '60s and '70s in New York. She even wrote a book about him entitled Just Kids.
