Högl culture tip: Egon Schiele anniversary exhibition
In tribute to the hundredth anniversary of the death-day of Egon Schiele the Albertina shows from late February till the middle of June an insight into his short live, his creative development and his sources of inspirations.
Schiele was an Austrian expressionist painter and one of the greatest drawers of the 20th century. Next to Gustav Klimt he was one of the most significant artists of the Viennese Moderne.
Distinctive for Schiele is his ambitious use of perspective, exaggerated gestures and mimes. Next to a lot of self-portraits he devoted his work to nude portraits of women, as well as land- and cityscapes.
