Description

The paintings, drawings and watercolours of Egon Schiele (1890-1918) explore the emotional turmoil of late adolescence, fraught with feeling and sexual anxiety. This book traces his career, from his early, shimmering paintings influenced by Gustav Klimt, to his Expressionist breakthrough, and concluding with works completed shortly before his death at the age of 28. Twenty-seven of the works are reproduced in colour, and the accompanying text combines anecdote and art history to provide an account of Schiele's life, aesthetic development, lovers, circle of friends, and the circumstances surrounding his creations.
