Intimate portraits by Egon Schiele
October 2018 marks 100 years since the death of Egon Schiele (Austrian painter; 12 June 1890 – 31 October 1918):
When Austrian artist Egon Schiele died of Spanish flu in 1918, he left behind an incredible body of work. At times explicit, grotesque and twisted, his art is defined by its brutality and its honesty. akg-images has an impressive collection of paintings of and by Schiele, including many of his stunning self-portraits. We chose some of our favourites for this selection.
