Egon Schiele stays my favorite painter. I should say the only painter I really got into and I read about after having seen an exhibition on Austrian expressionists in Paris. Along with Klimt and kokoschka, thieir masterpieces are what I would classify captivating and totally out of their time.
Above is one of Schiele's many self-portraits.
"The hermits" (1912), below, would symbolize Schiele's new departure after having been in Klimt's shadow for many years. Schiele appears in front of Klimt in this dark painting. Probably my favorite.javascript:void(0)
