About Two Little Girls

The artwork titled “Two Little Girls” was created by the artist Egon Schiele in 1911. This piece is a watercolor on paper and it reflects the Expressionist movement. The genre of this artwork is portrait, and it is located at the Albertina in Vienna, Austria.

The painting depicts two young girls in a stylized form, common to Schiele’s expressionistic approach. The children’s faces are rendered with delicate lines and washes of color, presenting a strong contrast to the boldly outlined and vividly painted garments. Their eyes are oversized and seem to be filled with an intensity that is characteristic of Schiele’s subjects. The use of color is striking; while the faces and hands are lightly tinted, the clothing is composed of bold reds, blues, and blacks, accentuating the figures against the plain background. The overall composition conveys a sense of intimacy yet distance, a duality often found in Schiele’s works. Schiele’s signature can be seen toward the bottom right of the painting, anchoring his identity to the image.
