Egon Schiele was born in 1890 in Tulln on the Danube, Lower Austria. He was an Austrrian painter of Expressionism. Together with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka, he is one of the most important visual artists of Viennese Modernism. Schiele was a victim of the Spanish influenza epidemic and lost his life in 1918 at the age of 28 and is buried in Vienna. Schiele's works today achieve top prices at international auctions. In museums worldwide, his paintings are highly valued because in spite of their artistic genius the works find admiration of Schiele's reputation as "early perfection". The largest collections of Schiele's works are located in Viennese museums such as the Leopold Museum, the Belvedere and the Albertina. In addition to numerous self-portraits, Schiele is known above all for his acts, which show men, women and children. His landscapes and images of cities are also gaining in popularity. This book contains nearly his entire work: 275 paintings in full color. Egon Leo Adolf Ludwig Schiele wurde am 12. Juni 1890 in Tulln an der Donau geboren. Neben Gustav Klimt und Oskar Kokoschka zählt er zu den bedeutendsten bildenden Künstlern der Wiener Moderne. Schiele war ein Opfer der Spanischen Grippeepidemie und starb am 31. Oktober 1918 mit 28 Jahren und ist in Wien begraben. Schieles Werke erzielen auf inter-nationalen Auktionen heute Höchst-preise. In Museen weltweit sind seine Bilder hochbegehrt, denn sie finden ungeachtet seiner künstlerischen Geni-alität durch Schieles Ruf als „Früh-vollendeter“ Bewunderung. Die größten Sammlungen von Schiele-Werken befindet sich in Wiener Museen, wie dem Leopold Museum, dem Belvedere und der Albertina. Neben den zahlreichen Selbstbildnissen ist Schiele vor allem für seine Akte, die fast ausschließlich Frauen und Kinder zeigen, bekannt. Aber auch seine Landschafts- und Städtebilder erfreuen sich wachsender Beliebtheit. Dieses Buch enthält fast seine gesamten Werke: 275 seiner Gemälde in Farbe.
