About Two Girls

The artwork titled “Two Girls” was created by the artist Egon Schiele in 1911. This piece is executed in watercolor on paper and is classified as part of the Expressionism movement. It is a portrait by genre and, as of the knowledge cutoff date, is held in a private collection.

In “Two Girls,” Egon Schiele employs his distinctive expressionistic style to capture the forms and emotions of two subjects who appear intimately connected. The work features bold watercolor hues, predominantly a vivid red that cloaks one of the figures and stands out against the brown and ochre tones. One girl’s head rests gently atop the other’s shoulder, suggesting a closeness or tender relationship between them. The lines are loose but expressive, with the facial features rendered with Schiele’s characteristic emphasis on emotive expressions. The background is minimalistic, highlighting the figures further and drawing the viewer’s focus to their interaction and demeanor.
