Egon Schiele …The Self portraits

 

Yesterdays blog inspired me to write a blog on the self portraits of Egon Schiele. Schiele himself was his most reliable model and in the short period he made his art he always made studies of himself and really stroke a pose.  Studies of his head and studies of full length figures all show the different poses he took. In many of these studies/portraits his head or body is distorted in some way making the pose exceptional and really typical for Egon Schiele. Some of these selfportraits are available through www.ftn-books.com. I bought these at the time there was a “Schiele Klimt Klee” exhibition at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and these prints were made according to the highest standards by the printshop of the Gemeentemuseum. Best of all …their size is 1 on 1 with the original drawing which makes the print almost perfect.
