This study examines the character and development of Egon Schiele whose distinctive and original Expressionism reaffirmed the unrecognized role of Vienna as one of the leading centres of the fine arts. He is regarded as one of the major artists of the twentieth century here and the text examines his contact with and influences of Munch, Rodin, Klimt and other contemporaries. The plate section consists of examples of his paintings, watercolours and drawings in chronological order - nudes, portraits, allegories and landscapes until his death in 1918.
