Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele (Jun 12, 1890 - Oct 31, 1918)
Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality, and the many self-portraits the artist produced, including naked self-portraits. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.

Self Portrait (1910)

in vienna there are shadows . the city is black and everything is done by rote . i want to be alone . i want to go to the bohemian forest
may , june , july , august , september , october . i must see new things and investigate them . i want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds
i want to gaze with astonishment at moldy garden fences , i want to experience them all , to hear young birch plantations and trembling leaves
to see light and sun , enjoy wet , green-blue valleys in the evening , sense goldfish glinting , see white clouds building up in the sky , to speak to flowers
i want to look intently at grasses and pink people , old venerable churches , to know what little cathedrals say
to run without stopping along curving meadowy slopes across vast plains , kiss the earth and smell soft warm marshland flowers
and then i shall shape things so beautifully : fields of colour
