Egon Schiele | Expressionist painter | Page 2

Egon Leon Adolf Schiele🎨 (12 June 1890 - 31 October 1918) was an Austrian painter🎨.
A protégé of Gustav Klimt🎨, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century.
The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.
