About this title


The meaning of portraiture in the egocentric and erotic culture of Vienna at the end of the Hapsburg Empire frames Alessandra Comini's definitive, lavishly illustrated study of the art of Egon Schiele (1890-1918), first published in 1975 and now available in paperback with a new preface and updated bibliography. Comini analyzes Schiele's work in the context of Viennese Expressionism, rising existential consciousness, and the unique ambiance of Vienna. The human figure forms the most compelling motif in Schiele's oeuvre, which is comprised of hundreds of oils and thousands of drawings. Numerous self-portraits record emotional states, reflect major stylistic changes, and provide a brilliant focus for this examination of his art and his life.
