Jakub Schikaneder (1855-1924) | Impressionistic nocturnes


Jakub Schikaneder came from the family of a German customs office clerk. Despite the family's poor background, he was able to pursue his studies, thanks in part to his family's love of art; an ancestor was Urban Schikaneder, the elder brother of the librettist Emanuel Schikaneder.
After having completed his studies in Prague and Munich 1871-1879, Schikaneder, alongside Emanuel Krescenc Liška, was involved in the furnishing of the royal box in the National Theatre in Prague; however, this work was lost in a fire in 1881.

Rainer Maria Rilke / Auguste Rodin | Love Song, 1907

Auguste Rodin🎨 - Fugit Amor, 1881

How shall I hold my soul and yet not touch
It with your own? How shall I ever place
It clear of you on anything beyond?
Oh gladly I would stow it next to such
Things in the darkness as are never found
Down in an alien and silent space
That does not resonate when you resound.

Egon Schiele | Quotes / Le lettere

  • Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal.
  • Bodies have their own light which they consume to live: they burn, they are not lit from the outside.
  • I must see new things and investigate them. I want to taste dark water and see crackling trees and wild winds.
  • At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants...
  • I was in love with everything- I wanted to look with love at the angry people so that their eyes would be forced to respond; and I wanted to bring gifts to the envious and tell them that I am worthless.

Egon Schiele | Expressionist painter


Egon Schiele, (born June 12, 1890, Tulln, near Vienna - died Oct. 31, 1918, Vienna), Austrian🎨 Expressionist painter, draftsman and printmaker noted for the eroticism of his figurative works.
As a student at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts (1907-09), Schiele was strongly influenced by the Jugendstil movement, the German Art Nouveau.
He met Gustav Klimt🎨, leader of the Vienna Sezession group, and the linearity and subtlety of Schiele’s work owe much to Klimt’s decorative elegance.
