Alfred Roller (1864-1935), one of Mahler's best friends, described Mahler's appearance: "When, on the morning after the night he died, I took my leave of Mahler's mortal remains, his features still bore the agony of his long struggle with death. Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), who saw him several hours later, told me what regal calm and unworldy beauty they had then taken on.
