ART·spiration: Egon Schiele

 

Happy birthday to Egon Schiele who was born on this day in 1890. The protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was the youngest student to enroll at Vienna’s Academy of Arts at the age of 16. The artist is known for his twisted figures and very expressive lines – both of which helped him to become a prominent figure in the world of figurative drawing, and expressionism. 

 We are fascinated by the way in which Schiele creates his figures – so full of emotion and unique!
