Overview

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, and 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.
