(Detail from Egon Schiele, Self-Portrait with Peacock Waistcoat, Standing. 1911, gouache, watercolor and black crayon. Collection Ernst Ploil, Vienna)
100 years since his passing in 1918, the art of Egon Schiele is still intensely gripping and fascinating to this day. Raw, grotesque, passionate, shocking and sexual, Schiele’s art is unlike any other artist of the 20th century.
To celebrate his life and art, galleries around the world are also mounting similar exhibitions.
New York’s Galerie St. Etienne (24 West 57th Street #802) will be presenting Egon Schiele: In Search of the Perfect Line from November 1, 2019 through March 2, 2019. Galerie St. Etienne has the distinction of being home to Schiele’s first American one man show in 1941, and their new loan exhibition planned to coincide with the release, by the Kallir Research Institute, of an updated, digitized version of Jane Kallir's catalogue raisonné, Egon Schiele: The Complete Works.
Other exhibitions include:
Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris
The first monographic presentation of Schiele’s work ever mounted at a French museum, this exhibition features over 100 works by the Austrian artist.
