Known for his intense and lyrical style, the Austrian Expressionist Schiele was also a gifted writer. This selection of the artist’s poetry and letters gracefully intertwines his powerful words with his indelible images. Elegantly designed with special paper and unique typography, this book emulates a personal journal. Interspersed with sixty sketches, drawings and paintings, Schiele’s poems and letters illustrate his artistic and personal struggles and passions. Many of the artworks are referenced in or parallel his writings, thereby enhancing the reader’s experience of them. Elisabeth Leopold adds her commentary to this sumptuous presentation that will leave readers with a deeper appreciation of Schiele’s creative genius.
