The work of Egon Schiele is not as well known as that of his older fellow Expressionist, Gustav Klimt. This catalog, along with the exhibition it accompanies( which travels to the National Gallery of Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the San Diego Museum of Art), should help bring Schiele out of Klimt's shadow. Profusely illustrated with color plates as well as black-and-white photographs of lost works, the text by Kallir (author of the Schiele catalogue raisonne, Egon Schiele: The Complete Works , Abrams, 1990) provides useful commentary on the artist's tortured portrayal of the human figure. In addition to a biographical chronology of the artist and exhibition checklist, there is a fascinating essay by Schiele scholar Alessandra Comini describing her meetings in the 1960s with many of Schiele's portrait subjects. Highly recommended for art libraries and strong collections of 20th-century art.-- Martin R. Kalfatovic, Natl. Museum of American Art/Natl. Portrait Gallery Lib., Smithsonian Inst., Washington, D.C.
