EGON SCHIELE

Best known for his erotic, almost pornographic artwork, Austrian painter Egon Schiele helped propel forward early Expressionism. A protégé of Gustave Klimt, Schiele’s intensely sexual and raw work simultaneously impressed and disturbed the masses. He painted portraits, preferring self-portraits, of which he produced an abundance. His subjects (himself included) often posed nude. The dark style of his art – twisted body shapes and expressive lines – featuring nude models marked his work indecent, landing him in jail where he created a series about the discomforts of losing freedom. Truly an artist through and through! At 15, Schiele’s father died so he became a ward to his uncle, who begrudgingly allowed him to attend art school. He quickly resented its traditional approach to art and left after his third year to develop his own style. Schiele sought out Gustav Klimt, who became a generous mentor. Schiele hosted a first exhibit that helped found his career as an artist.
