About this item
Austrian painter Egon Schiele was a gifted artist, mentored by the great Gustav Klimt. Inspired by the human form, he is best-known for his figurative works, particularly of women, with their defiantly confrontational air and their bold contortions. Schiele’s nudes are shockingly direct in the way they face us: frank, unabashed and defiant in their gaze. To be as resolutely transgressive as Schiele is an artistic achievement in itself. Egon Schiele Masterpieces of Art features a fascinating introduction to the life and art of this talented artist, as well as showcasing his key portraits, nudes, landscapes and still lifes in all their glory.
