EGON SCHIELE

This intimate look at the provocative painter and his world features all of Egon Schiele's masterworks as well as many lesser-known pieces, along with engaging text. Schiele is known as the 'enfant terrible' of turn-of-the-century Vienna. But what exactly made him so infamous-and why are his paintings so beloved?

As engaging as it is informative, this beautiful book presents Schiele from a variety of perspectives while exploring the culture and society that he inhabited. His arresting portraits, at once shocking and brilliantly rendered, are closely examined in the context of the Art Nouveau and Expressionist movements.
