Happy Birthday Egon Schiele

One of my favourite artists was born today in 1890.  Sadly Egon Schiele sadly he died at the age of 28 from Spanish flu but in his brief lifetime he created some of the most moving, raw and powerful paintings and sketches that I’ve ever seen.

Unfortunately I’ve never been lucky enough to see his work in an exhibition but I have indulged in a few books.  My favourite being – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Egon-Schiele-Erwin-Mitsch/dp/0714828629.
