Egon Schiele (18901918) was one of the most influential and popular painters to emerge from the cultural ferment that characterized Vienna at the turn of the century. Yet despite the appreciation of his art, the ‘real’ Egon Schiele has remained elusive. This biography offers fascinating insights into the artist’s brief and sometimes troubled life. Basing her text chiefly on firsthand sources, many of them previously unpublished, Schiele expert Jane Kallir provides a vibrant account of the artist’s childhood and early adulthood, his turbulent encounters with Vienna’s patron class, his sexual escapades and imprisonment on a morals charge, his ultimately disappointing marriage, and his premature death at the age of 28. Interwoven with the story of the artist’s life is a balanced presentation of his art – the mature and relatively placid pieces together with the turbulent Expressionist work – lavishly illustrated with 94 full-color illustrations and 107 duotone plates.
