Egon Schiele : Portraits, Hardback Book

Egon Schiele : Portraits Hardback

Description

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

A superb draftsman and colourist, he produced images of startling emotional power.

Following the lead of his mentor, Gustav Klimt, Schiele created figurative works of uncanny intimacy and brought a new openness to the art of his time.

Schiele's premature death at the age of 28 has added a mythic quality to his artistic achievements. Egon Schiele: Portraits focuses on five groupings of the artist's work: family and academy, fellow artists, sitters and patrons, lovers and allegory.

In addition, it features a special section on a traumatic and pivotal period in Schiele's life: his arrest and imprisonment during the summer of 1912.

Documenting the artist's changing style, both pre- and post-imprisonment, the book features many key works that have been assembled for this exhibition from both American and European museums and private collections.
