  • Death And The Maiden By Gustav Klimt

    former student Egon Schiele. Both twentieth century artists and both independent in their style, their work together embodies common idiosyncrasies. The two share many qualities in their work, especially a kind of anxiety. Although stylistically, Klimt 's work is formally ordered and decorative while Schiele 's work is unforgiving in its brutality. An example that displays this duality in their work and similar compositions are Klimt’s The Kiss and Schiele’s Death and the Maiden. Austrian painter Gustav Klimt (1862-1918) was born in Vienna. Klimt was noted for the erotic quality of his highly decorative art. His style was perceived as rebellious of the traditional academic…

    Fear and Self-Loathing in Egon Schiele 's Work Egon Schiele was 20th century Austrian painter, known mostly for his erotic portraits of women and his tortured self-portraits, but he also did landscape painting and photography.

  • Edith Schiele Seated Essay

    mind-boggling revelation, the room allowed for the viewer’s interpretation is endless. I believe the content and interpretation one can gather from Egon Schiele’s painting “Edith Schiele Seated” expresses this sentiment beautifully. I value subtlety in art. While symbolism and metaphor-laden pieces rank as some of the more thought-provoking works of art I’ve seen, it seems as if artists occasionally tend to strive towards being too “deep.” In an attempt to accomplish this,…

  • The Female Nude Analysis

    The When considering the female figures depicted by Egon Schiele, one cannot denounce the erotic, pornographic nature of his work.

    of painting, they are also similar in the sense that they both seek to portray reality in an outside-of-the-box type of way. A beautiful example of impressionism is Monet’s depiction of a mother and her child. Without looking for more than a brief moment, the viewer can immediately decipher what the painting is trying to portray—very simply, a mother in some sort of field of flowers with her child.

    as another example. The author describes to the readers that Rudolf displays the symptom of depression and the feeling of uselessness and loneliness and that he commits suicide when he was 30 years old.
