Egon Schiele by Esther Selsdon( )

13 editions published in 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the great Expressionist painters. He was taught by Gustav Klimt, and at a very early age, like his Viennese Secession predecessors broke with the traditions of official Austrian art. His numerous self portraits and nude models remained consistent throughout his career in keeping with his erotic, sensual and tormented visions of art. The paintings and text included in this book bring the extraordinary talent of this artist who, sadly, died of Spanish influenza at the age of 28 in Vienna."--Back cover

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

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 543 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 : eros and passion by Klaus Albrecht Schröder( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and German and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Austrian Expressionism proclaims that art itself is a violation of society's conventions and norms. No other artist in early twentieth-century Vienna depicted the body with such radical candor as Egon Schiele. A preoccupation with Eros, sexuality, and death pervades his entire oeuvre, his insatiable curiosity and new developments in erotic and psychiatric photography driving him to explore the shift in the relationship between the visible and the invisible, the depictable and the undepictable in launching his pictorial fantasy of the bodies of men and women in general and the artist in particular. But despite the uncompromising truthfulness of his allegedly pornographic imagery, the visual enjoyment of the work of this consummate artist transcends the opposition between sensual arousal and aesthetic perception."--BOOK JACKET

Egon Schiele : landscapes by Rudolf Leopold( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This visually stunning collection of landscape paintings and drawings by Egon Schiele brings to light a little-known aspect of this famous painter's oeuvre, proving that his mastery extends beyond his radical renditions of the human figure and revealing themes that appeared throughout his life's work. While Schiele is largely revered for his provocative paintings of women, these works were just one aspect of his artistic expression. Schiele's landscapes represent an important facet of his career and are a valuable contribution to the school of European nature painting

Egon Schiele, 1890-1918 : desire and decay by Wolfgang Georg Fischer( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Egon Schiele (1890-1918), together with Klimt, is seen as the most important Austrian artist of his time - but who was he and why does his art compel our attention as it does? This study attempts to find the "real" Schiele, examining his life and work through his major oils and erotic drawings
Egon Schiele : life and work by Jane Kallir( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Jacket
The art of Egon Schiele by Egon Schiele( Book )

8 editions published between 1974 and 1989 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schiele's pictures still shock us with their linking of eros and thanatos, naked spiritual longings and a neurotic energy that looks and feels contemporary. Pregnant Woman and Death , Two Girls Embracing Each Other , Levitation , Dead City the titles proclaim the obsessions of this Austrian expressionist who died of flu at age 28. First published in English translation in 1975, this monograph has been out of print for more than a decade. It contains some of the finest examples of Schiele's compulsive art, beautifully reproduced in 65 color plates and 108 black-and-whites. Mitsch is curator of Vienna's Albertina Museum. His ponderous, art-lecture prose catches fire when he discusses Schiele's "fanatic search for truth" and the "powerful, pathetic explosions of feeling" that haunt his canvases. This volume holds its own against more recent and comprehensive studies of an artist who filtered the lessons of symbolism and Klimt through his own tortured sensibility. -- Publishers Weekly
Egon Schiele : the egoist by Jean-Louis Gaillemin( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 282 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
