Egon Schiele: 159 Paintings and Drawings

Read
178 printed pages
Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter, a protégé of Gustav Klimt and important figurative painter of the early 20th century. With his signature graphic style, embrace of figural distortion, and bold defiance of conventional norms of beauty, Egon Schiele was one of the leading figures of Austrian Expressionism. Schiele was an extraordinary artist. His dominating theme was the human body, which he depicts in truly singular forms. The extraordinary ability to form the three dimensional body through dominating contour lines, his choice of very strong and forthright colors, the frequently ambiguous spaces, and his extraordinary sensitivity, which transforms even a seemingly quick drawing into a complete work of art, have allowed Schiele's fame to continue to grow. During his short but highly prolific career which ended with his premature death, Schiele created more than three thousand works on paper and approximately three hundred paintings.
