Can passion be truly illustrated? Can vigor be expressed in an image, a painted one? Egon Schiele, a figurative Austrian painter from the early twentieth century, proves with a life’s work, that yes, it can be done.

I discovered the work of Schiele, during college while looking up Gustav Klimt, another well known Austrian painter who had at one point mentored Schiele. Egon Schiele’s work is raw, adventurous, provocative and was radical at his times. Infact Egon Schiele’s Kneeling Nude with Raised Hands (1910) is considerably the most significant nude art piece made during the 20th century.

Recently another notable Austrian, Dieter Berner, an acclaimed director made a film by the name Death of a Maiden, which is the name of a significant painting by Egon Schiele. The film tries to give us a realistic glimpse into the artist’s life. Do enjoy the trailer!
