Author(s): Leopold, Rudolf


This monograph on Egon Schiele was first edited by Rudolf Leopold in 1972, forming the basis for Egon Schiele's rise to global fame. This important document of art-historical literature has long been out of print, but it is now available once more in a revised edition with an updated catalogue raisonné. At the same time, this magnificent volume provides an insight into the artist's life through letters, sketches, and documents.

Rudolf Leopold first recognized the significance of Schiele's art in the 1950s. He was largely responsible for ensuring that the artist received the place he deserved in art history and public awareness. This monograph presents Schiele's paintings, watercolors, and drawings chronologically in large-format color plates. It is complemented by a profound examination of the artist's motifs, studies, sketches, and documents. A comprehensive overview of Schiele's oeuvre, this new edition also pays tribute to Leopold's achievement.
