Interpretation of an Egon Schiele





One of my favourite artists for inspiration..... especially when it comes to brevity of Line...

approx. 4" x 6" drawn and painted on the back of a old card I found in the studio.

I recently had an artist friend in town and sent him to the Neue Gallerie just up the street from the Met. They specialize in German and Austrian Expressionist pieces and my friend had never seen an Egon Schiele piece in person and I knew that they had a roomful of portrait drawings/sketches by Schiele. Needless to say, when I saw my friend later that day, he couldn't thank me enough.

I enjoy your interpretations of Egon's work!!!

Thanks for the visit. While I remembered Egon's work from art history, I had to do a little research. I think you evoke his style well. Best

I love love love these--I'm awed by Egon Schiele: his people, and whatever else he draws or paints (I love his landscapes; there are several good books of them), are always perfectly placed on the paper. An ability that continues to elude me.

I can never get enough of his work... ohhhh, to be as talented as he was... he left the earth so young... can you imagine what else he would have done or how his work would have evolved...
