Egon Schiele’s artworks, full of distorted figures, eroticism and anguish were unpopular images during his lifetime. An Austrian Expressionist and protégé of Gustav Klimt’s, Schiele (1890 – 1918) died prematurely from the flu, producing almost 3,500 mesmerizing artworks during his short lifetime. Best-known for his nudes and semi-nudes posed in disconcerting contortions, Schiele also created emotionally-wrought self-portraits and allegories. While under arrest for immorality and seduction, he used his 24-day imprisonment to create numerous watercolors and drawings.
