Egon Schiele

Few modern artists have such a following today as Egon Schiele (1890–1918), who in his short life created numerous works that draw in casual viewers and dedicated art lovers alike. Though he enjoyed some success during his lifetime, it wasn’t until the early 1950s that his lasting importance began to be widely appreciated. This book offers striking reproductions of works from each of Schiele’s creative periods, revealing an artists who captivates the viewer with emotional subjects and technical ingenuity in equal measure. Accompanying those artworks are selections from the rich trove of documents Schiele left behind, including his little-known existential poetry.
