About this item

Austrian Expressionist Egon Schiele produced a prolific body of work before his early death at the age of twenty-eight in the flu epidemic of 1918. Apart from a few hundred oil paintings, he created nearly 3,000 drawings and watercolours. Limited access to these fragile works and dispersion among several collections have made a comprehensive survey of the artist's work a rarity. This volume assembles this master draughtsman's works on paper, providing a unique opportunity to study his rapid artistic development over the course of a brief twelve years of activity. The author of Schiele's catalogue raisonne, Jane Kallir, introduces each year of the artist's output, discussing his step-by-step progression from child prodigy to master of the human form and expression.
