Books Info:

Egon Schiele free pdf As a precocious child talent, growing up in 1890s Vienna - the same that nurtured the psychoanlysis of Freud - Egon Schiele developed a distinctive personal style that matched his obsession with sex, life and death. Although he died young he produced a body of paintings, watercolours and drawings that rank him among the most original artists of the 20th century, and an important forerunner of the Expressionist movement. In this book Christopher Short presents a biographical introduction and survey of Schiele's art, following his detailed commentaries on a selection of male and female nudes, self portraits, portraits, landscapes and allegorical works representing a cross-section of the artist's finest works in all media.
