At the tender age of 20, Egon Schiele broke radically with the history of figurative painting, portraying the psychological state of his subjects rather than their physical characteristics. This approach resulted in a deep well of subversive drawings and paintings that unmasked his sitters—including, and perhaps most significantly, himself—as angsty, emaciated, gender ambiguous, and sexually experimental beings.

Since Schiele’s tragic demise in 1918 at the age of 28, a cult following has galvanized around the wunderkind Austrian artist, whose avant-garde and open-minded depiction of the human body and sexuality was unprecedented in the realm of critically acclaimed art. Below, we explore the forces that inspired the power of Schiele’s oeuvre—one that still spellbinds artists and art lovers the world over today.

"The Sun" by Edvard Munch

This may be the only happy painting by Munch. Gloriously happy.

@edgarblythe,
I guess Munch had at least one good day in his life in order to paint the sun. All of his other stuff is angst-ridden like the other expressionists in Europe. It's a sad commentary on life in Norway and Europe at the time.

Cy Twombly (American, 1928–2011): Untitled (Scenes from an Ideal Marriage), 1986. Oil, watercolor and pencil on paper, 52 x 72 cm (20-1/2 x 28-1/3 inches).
Intuition tells me this was left lying on the floor, with fresh paint dribbled over it and a toddler and a chimp vying to make the best streaks and blobs.
