Egon Schiele

"Standing Girl in a blue dress and green stocking, back view"  1913 Egon Schiele

Egon Schiele c.1914

Egon Schiele (German pronunciation: approximately SHEE-leh; June 12, 1890 – October 31, 1918) was an  Austrian painter.  A protégé of Gustav Klimt,  Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity, and the many self-portraits the artist produced. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism. -Wikipedia
