Egon Schiele

$ 2.99

In spite of his death to Spanish Flu at the age of 28, Egon Schiele would become one of the leading figures of Austrian Expressionism and a spokesman for a generation of ambitious artists in the years to come. His extraordinary artworks are characterised by their intensity, raw sexuality and controversial tone. Unlike his great mentor Gustav Klimt, Schiele emphasised expression over decoration, heightening the emotive power of line with agitated tension. The centre of his artistic interest was the contemplation of his own existence, as demonstrated by his countless self portraits. These searing, psychologically complex images explore the human figure at its most expressive. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Schiele’s complete works, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
