Egon Schiele. The Complete Paintings 1909–1918


From Rebellious to Revered

Obsessive, radical, disturbing: Egon Schiele

After Egon Schiele (1890-1918) freed himself from the shadow of his mentor and role model Gustav Klimt, he had just ten years to inscribe his signature style into the annals of modernity before the Spanish flu claimed his life. Being a child prodigy quite aware of his own genius and a passionate provocateur, this didn’t prove to be too big a challenge.

His haggard, overstretched figures, drastic depiction of sexuality, and self-portraits in which he staged himself with emaciated facial expressions bordering between brilliance and madness, had none of the decorative quality of Klimt’s hymns of love, sexuality, and yearning devotion. Instead, Schiele’s work spoke of a brutal honesty, one that would upset and irreversibly change Viennese society.

Although his works were later defamed as “degenerate” and for a time were almost forgotten altogether, they influenced generations of artists – from Francis Bacon and Günter Brus to Tracey Emin. Today, his then-misunderstood oeuvre continues to fetch exorbitant prices on the international art market.

Presented in a voluminous format that captures all of the intensity and emotional truth of his work, Egon Schiele. The Complete Paintings 1909–1918 features 221 paintings and 146 drawings that retrace the fertile last decade of Schiele’s life. With many pieces newly photographed for this edition, these works are paired with excerpts from his countless writings and poems, as well as essays introducing his life and oeuvre, to situate the Austrian master in the context of European Expressionism and trace his extraordinary legacy.

Schiele non plus ultra

Holger,10 dicembre 2021
Monumentales Werk. Druck, Abbildungen und Details in bester Qualität. Absolutes Musthave für Schiele-Fans und -Kenner.

A really awesome art book which deserves its 5 stars

Domas,29 ottobre 2021
Paintings are published on glossy paper, the drawings on mat paper. I would strongly recommend this XXL Schiele edition to have together with XXL Klimt edition (by the same author). Together these two art books already make a very great look!
