'Egon Schiele' is an evocative depiction based on the life of the Austro-Hungarian artist whose short career spanned the turn of the 20th centur. Schiele (1890-1918) was a painter known for full-frontal portraits of naked women (and on many occasions, himself). They were stark and disturbing. He painted his subjects in gaunt, twisting and unnatural poses. Their voyeuristic tone and blatant eroticism outraged society, landing him in prison for 24 days. Nevertheless, his work would have a strong influence on the development of expressionist art. This book focuses on the artist's creative years, the development of his talent, his relationships with other artists, including Gustav Klimt, the women in his life and his obsession with making provocative art.
