Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele - Large Format Fine Art Prints and Reproductions

Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter and illustrator born 12 June 1890 in Tulln near Vienna and died October 31, 1918 in Vienna.

Schiele left about three hundred paintings, seventeen engravings and lithographs, two woodcuts, numerous sculptures and three thousand drawings, watercolors and gouaches. His portraits and nudes are captured in unusual or grotesque poses, Egon Schiele who studied the attitudes of some lunatics in a mental asylum and the positions of manipulated puppets, giving this "disjointed" look to some of his characters and his art. The thick lines, complex poses generating a multiplication of oblique lines, the swollen flesh of bodies, sometimes tormented backgrounds, the provocation of some nudes led to consider Schiele's art as close to the expressionist movement current those days in the Germanic countries.

Schiele's work also plays a vital role in the history of the relationship between art and erotica. Some of his nudes take explicit poses: for example, the model in "Seen in a dream" (1911) opens her sex facing the viewer. The artist has also extensively covered the topic of male and female masturbation in works that could be described as pornographic today (The Red Host, Eros or Masturbating self-portrait, all in the same year 1911).

1915 Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest, Hungary. At this time, Schiele painted several times a couple of girls entwined into a union charged with eroticism. It is believed that the artist thought of a utopian "threesome" with two women in his life: Wally Neuzil, his girlfriend for four years, and  Edith Harms whom he married on June 17, 1915.
