Egon Schiele. Drawings & Watercolours
Thames & Hudson, London, (2014 Reprint) 2003
This volume assembles the Expressionist master draughtsman’s works on paper for the first time.
Apart from his few hundred paintings, Schiele created nearly 3,000 drawings and watercolours, but limited access to these fragile works has made a comprehensive survey of his work a rarity. Here then is a unique opportunity to study his astonishing artistic development over the 12 years of his brief career.
Jane Kallir, the author of Schiele’s catalogue raisonné, introduces each year of the artist’s output, discussing his step-by-step progression from child prodigy to master of the human form and expression.
