Description - Egon Schiele by Simon Wilson

Egon Schiele was an Austrian Expressionist painter and is widely recognised as a major figure in the history of modem art. In this revised edition Simon Wilson explores the influences which helped shape his art. The Austrian painter Egon Schiele is now recognised as a major figure in the history of modern art and in the development of the Expressionist movement. He was only 28 when he died in 1918, yet in his short life he produced a remarkable series of intense and powerful images, and although dogged by unfounded accusations of pornography he pursued his vocation as an artist with uncompromising intensity, giving expression to his most powerful feelings with an anguished honesty. In this recently revised book, Simon Wilson explores Schiele's obsession with sex, life and death, which gave rise to his famous female nudes and nude self-portraits, and examines his vision of the artist in society, and his work as a landscape and portrait painter.
