Egon Schiele (1890-1918.) (died at age 28!) A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity, and the many self-portraits the artist produced.
Egon Schiele's use of line is raw. It feels like he pushes his drawing utensil rather than pulling it.
Absolutely obsessed with this Egon Schiele Standing Half-Nude with a Brown Shirt 1913. Mood 1/2
I got to talk to an old friend and we shared a couple of laughs. Looking back we almost spent the whole summer hanging out together and going to parties. We may not have that luxury now but when we talk it's like we're in the same room, I guess that's just the value of a friendship. Who knows maybe one day we'll be roomates.
