After Egon Schiele (1890-1918) freed himself from the shadow of his mentor Gustav Klimt, he had just ten years to inscribe his signature style into the annals of modernity before the Spanish flu claimed his life. Being a child prodigy quite aware of his own genius, this didn’t prove to be too big a challenge.
Presented in a voluminous format that captures all the intensity and emotional truth of Schiele's work, this book features 221 paintings and 146 drawings that retrace the fertile last decade of his life. These works are paired with excerpts from his countless writings and poems, as well as essays introducing his life.
