There is something ever so romantic about the tale of the artist and muse. In the case of Australian musician Nick Cave and his wife Susie, the pair play both roles. The duo, whose love affair began in 1997, were quick to make things official and married in 1999, welcoming twin boys Earl and Arthur the following year. In the 2004 documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, Nick discussed the first time he laid eyes on Susie at the Victoria & Albert museum in London: "I was lost to her and that was that". Susie Bick was a model at the time, working with revolutionaries like Vivienne Westwood. She later quit modelling to focus on motherhood and now runs fashion label The Vampire's Wife. In the same documentary, Nick opened up about his favourite portrait of the model, celebrating her "innate relationship with the camera". Playing muse for Nick's 2013 album, Susie's graceful nude figure can be seen on the cover of "Push the Sky Away".
In 2015, a personal tragedy struck the Cave family when 15-year-old son Arthur died in a tragic accident near their home in Brighton. The couple's grief for the death of their son was explored in the moving documentary One More Time With Feeling, while Nick's sorrow was expressed through the accompanying album Skeleton Tree. The couple's ability to open up about such heartbreaking adversity both on and off screen is a testament to their true love and strength. Read on for the Cave's most tender public moments.
