I saw a portrait on someone’s wall in a Youtube video, it was weirdly enticing. Reverse searched the image and found him. Now months later I he came up in a Youtube video on artists influenced by van Gogh (see my post). That got me to put together this ‘home page’, for this remarkable man who died so young. I like all of his works, but ‘like’ is not the right word, lots of it just disturb me. But the landscapes and flowers are a delight.
Egon Leo Adolf Ludwig Schiele (German: [ˈʃiːlə] (About this soundlisten); 12 June 1890 – 31 October 1918) was an Austrian Expressionist painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality, and the many self-portraits the artist produced, including nude self-portraits. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele’s paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.
