Egon Schiele was an Austrian artist who gained recognition for his expressionist paintings, drawings, and prints. Born on June 12th, 1890 in Tulln, Austria, he attended the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts for two years and was greatly influenced by the Jugendstil movement. His artwork stands out due to its raw sexuality and intensity.
One notable aspect of Schiele’s work is his use of self-portraits. He produced many nude self-portraits that are now considered some of his most famous pieces. Additionally, his style was highly unique and recognizable with thin lines and exaggerated features.
Sadly, Schiele died at a young age from the Spanish flu pandemic on October 31st, 1918 when he was only 28 years old. Despite this fact, he had already made a name for himself as a powerful figure in European Art Nouveau.
Overall, Egon Schiele’s body of work has had an enduring impact on modern art to this day. His legacy helped shape future generations’ artistic vision with deep emotional expressionism being still present in modern art today.
