About this title


Egon Schiele's powerful paintings, watercolors, and drawings have long struck a responsive chord in modern audiences. Published to accompany a major exhibition opening at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, this is the perfect introduction for those unfamiliar with his work. 184 illustrations, 101 in full color.

From Booklist:

Schiele's work is not as well known as that of his contemporary, Gustav Klimt, but that will no longer be the case once this book and the major traveling exhibit it accompanies exert their moody influence. Schiele, the ultimate fin de si{Š}ecle artist, was born in 1890 to a father already suffering the fatal effects of syphilis. Haunted by the sexual source of his father's insanity and death, Schiele himself succumbed to influenza at 28, leaving behind a collection of arresting, sexually charged nudes, portraits, and landscapes. This volume is a superb introduction to Schiele: the text is succinct, and the plates are stunning. Schiele was a "consummate master of line," steeped in "ambivalence and ambiguity" and a searching sexuality. His nudes are, curiously, both vulnerable and defiant, while his self-portraits are startlingly dramatic and iconographic. When Schiele portrayed himself, he captured his intrinsic unconventionality and fascination with both the expressiveness of the body and the precariousness of life. We can't help but wonder how Schiele's work would have evolved had he lived longer; his last paintings exhibit a fresh naturalness and sense of calm. Donna Seaman
