EGON SCHIELE (1890-1918) Austrian Expressionist Egon Schiele was regarded by many of his contemporaries the greatest draftsman of the 20th century. With eroticism as one of the major themes in his works, he was at odds with art critics and society for most of his brief life. His treatment of the nude figure suggests a lonely, tormented spirit haunted rather than fulfilled by sexuality. At first strongly influenced by Gustov Klimt, whom he met in 1907, Schiele soon achieved an independent anti-classical style wherein his jagged lines arose more from psychological and spiritual feeling than from aesthetic considerations. Today, his works are very rare, and avidly collected by the most serious art collectors world-wide.
