Following the wedding season-fueled momentum of seeing famous authors and famous musicians in love, it’s time to tap into the equally rich vein of young, occasionally happy artist couples. In some cases, the photos below are as memorable and picturesque as the art these duos made. Art nerd couples, in particular, should take note; your search for the perfect Halloween costume may be over.

Dorothea Tanning arrived at the study of Max Ernst, a man 19 years her senior, in 1942. They played chess, traveled together, and eventually were married in a double wedding with Man Ray and Juliet Browner (who you’ll see below) in 1946.
