Austrian Expressionist painter Egon Schiele was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century.

From Publishers Weekly
Painter Egon Schiele enjoyed an astonishing range of accomplishments before his premature death at age 28, from being accepted to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts at 16 to being deemed "the foremost painter of his era" a mere 11 years later. In between, Schiele's talent and reputation flourished despite his intermittent poverty, conscription into the Austrian army, and imprisonment for exposing minors to pornography. Kallir, co-director of the esteemed Galerie St. Etienne, plunges into the artist's biography, never sensationalizing, never sidestepping, but deftly twining Schiele's artistic development together with his turbulent personal life and the shifting political landscape of Habsburg Austria. Whether exploring the influences of Oskar Kokoschka and Gustav Klimt, speculating on the precocious artist's...


Egon Schiele: Erotic Sketchbook
Egon Schiele (Illustrator)
379133431X
September 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
An intimate look at the erotic studies and paintings of a controversial artist whose works continues to provoke even today. Schiele’s fiercely drawn lines and confrontational compositions command our attention. His erotic art, most of all, evokes feelings of discomfort, titillation, curiosity, and even repulsion, and yet bears testimony to his talent and passion. This beautifully crafted collection of erotic masterpieces showcases the themes Schiele wove into all of his work: a fascination with the human psyche and sexuality, a desire to destroy the conservative facade of moral righteousness and expose the inner truth. Designed to resemble an artist’s sketchbook, this book offers viewers a chance to gain a better understanding of the technique and vision of this revolutionary painter.

Book Description
This visually stunning collection of landscape paintings and drawings by Egon Schiele brings to light a little-known aspect of this famous painter's oeuvre, proving that his mastery extends beyond his radical renditions of the human figure and revealing themes that appeared throughout his life's work. While Schiele is largely revered for his provocative paintings of women, these works were just one aspect of his artistic expression. Schiele's landscapes represent an important facet of his career and are a valuable contribution to the school of European nature painting.

Book Review
This monumental, gorgeous, two-part book, a biography and a catalogue raisonné, is the definitive tome on Egon Schiele (1890-1917), who died at the impossibly tragic age of 27. That a 700-page volume is devoted to his oeuvre says something about his youthful accomplishments, which are rivaled perhaps only by those of Georges Seurat. Author Jane Kallir is the daughter of Otto Kallir, a Viennese art historian and dealer who emigrated to New York in 1931 and opened the Galerie St. Etienne, which showcased the controversial, influential works of such artists as Oskar Kokoschka and Gustav Klimt along with Schiele. Kallir possesses the rare ability to analyze even the most delicate matters with forthrightness, disinterest, and perspicacity. Her lack of cant distinguishes her from the many passionate Schiele mythmakers, and...


Egon Schiele: Drawings and Watercolors

From Publishers Weekly
Co-director of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York, Kallir takes the reader through Schiele's incredibly fast development as a figurative artist of explosive sexuality, ending with his death at age 28 during the 1918 flu epidemic. More than 300 full-color, full-page plates carry titles, dates and physical descriptoins at the bottom of each page ("Standing Nude with Orange Stockings. 1914"), but the book itself is small for an art book, about the size of a typical hardcover novel, which makes turning the pages feel like reading the story of Schiele's life, a life inseparable from the decline of decadent, WWI-era Vienna. Richard Avedon has written a short foreword, and in his introduction Vartanian (Andy Warhol: Drawings and Illustrations of the 1950s) makes a plea for the reader to interpret Schiele's vision of...
