"Egon Schiele ranks with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka among the most influential painters to emerge from the cultural ferment that characterized Vienna at the turn of the century. Yet despite the appreciation of his art, the "real" Egon Schiele has remained elusive - like Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch, precursors of Expressionism with whom he has often been mired in the myth of the tortured artist. His imprisonment on morals charges and his premature death, at the age of twenty-eight in 1918, have tended to dominate accounts of his life." "Jane Kallir, author also of Egon Schiele: The Complete Works (which includes a catalogue raisonne) and Abrams' volume Gustav Klimt, is co-director of the Galerie St. Etienne in New York. She bases her biography chiefly on first-hand sources, many of them previously unpublished. She offers new insights into Schiele's brief and sometimes troubled life: his childhood and early adulthood, his turbulent encounters with Vienna's patron class, his clashes with the Establishment - the notorious "prison incident" and his military service during World War I, his sexual escapades, and his ultimately disappointing marriage." "Interwoven with the story of the artist's life, Kallir unfolds a balanced presentation of his art - the mature and relatively placid pieces together with the turbulent Expressionist ones. Lavishly illustrated in color and duotone, this volume offers the reader text and pictures of the highest quality."--BOOK JACKET

Between ruin and renewal : Egon Schiele's landscapes by Kimberly A Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Austrian artist Egon Schiele (1890--1918) is renowned for his intensely confrontational portraits, self-portraits, erotic images, and allegories. What is less well known today is that Schiele was also a talented and prolific landscape painter. In this illustrated book, Kimberly A. Smith provides the first full examination of Schiele's landscapes and townscapes, offering a new approach to and insights into the artist's work and motivations." "Diverging from the conventional interpretation that Schiele's paintings are revelations of the artist's psychology and emotional experience, Smith focuses instead on how his landscapes relate to the political, social, and historical conditions in early-twentieth-century Austria. Schiele's extraordinary depictions of the towns and countryside of Austria register and respond to the alienating effects of modernity, the problematic nature of selfhood, the eroding coherence of the imperial state, and other anxieties of his era. As Smith argues, the artist's landscape paintings express the same sense of ruin that preoccupied his contemporaries, but these pictures also contain a compelling note of redemption. In many ways Schiele's landscapes offer solutions to the very crisis his images present. The landscape paintings thus illuminate not only the structural dynamics of these pictures but also the character of Viennese modernism itself."--Jacket

Egon Schiele : the egoist by Jean-Louis Gaillemin( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele: bad boy of painting, thrown in prison, author of a strongly erotic body of paintings, many portraying himself - all the elements are in place to secure his notorious legend as a tormented artist and victim of society. But Jean-Louis Gaillemin prefers to look elsewhere for the real story of the artist. For Schiele, it was necessary to conquer form, to recompose the world against the struggle of death. As an enfant terrible in Vienna of the 1910s, and in the shadows of Klimt and Freud, Schiele often found in his own nude body the most willing model for his experiments in decomposing form, and he laced his drawings and paintings with fierce expressionism of sexuality or death. Masturbation, lesbian women, young girls - the gamut of forbidden subjects. At first schematic and violent, around 1916 Schiele's art acquired a three-dimensional and graphic quality that made it possible for bodies and nature to be reconstructed. Among other work, he turned his attention to making some astonishingly perceptive portraits and paintings more richly tinged with allegory that hint at the profound modernist directions his work was headed. But Schiele died tragically at the age of twenty-eight - casting him forever as an "eternal youth"--Which limits our assessment of this artist to only what he could express in the space of ten years."--Jacket

The Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944), who later lived in Germany and France, is one of the pioneers of twentieth-century art. Nowadays he is regarded as the founder of abstract art and is, moreover, the chief theoretician of this type of painting. Together with Franz Marc and others he founded the group of artists known as the Blauer Reiter in Munich. His art then freed itself more and more from the object, eventually culminating in the First Abstract Watercolour of 1910. In his theoretical writings Kandinsky repeatedly sought the proximity of music; and just as in music, where the individual notes constitute the medium whose effect stems from harmony and euphony, Kandinsky was aiming for a pure concord of colour through the interplay of various shades. Gauguin had demanded that everything must be sacrificed to pure colors. Kandinsky was the first to realise this and thus to influence a whole range of artists
