📜Titolo: Edith Harms Schiele con il nipote 👨🎨Autore: Egon Schiele 🕰️Anno: 1915 🏛 Ubicazione: Museum of Fine Arts Boston
I ritratti di Egon Schiele rappresentano persone vere, gli abbracci di Egon Schiele sono abbracci veri, di infinito affetto ed abbandono. La moglie di Egon, Edith, abbraccia il nipote ed è fusione vera non solo di corpi che si incontrano, ma di anime. L’immensa grandezza di Schiele sta non solo nel tratto grafico di qualità superiore ma anche nella capacità straordinaria di esprimere sentimenti veri e palpitanti. La vita scorre nelle opere di Schiele e per questo i suoi disegni ed i suoi dipinti saranno sempre attuali perché portano con se’ l’essenza stessa della vita che è fluire di emozioni che perennemente si rinnova. Buona serata, Sig
Self-Portrait with Chinese Lantern Plant (1912)
This is perhaps Schiele's most celebrated self-portrait, and certainly the most storied. In this work, painted during a time in which he was participating in numerous exhibitions, Schiele gazes directly at the viewer, his expression suggesting a confidence in his artistic gifts. Although Schiele deploys less distortion than in other self-portraits, the painting refuses to idealize its subject, featuring scars and other lines characteristic of the contoured manner of the artist's drawing style.
Exhibited in Munich in 1912 alongside work by a number of other Expressionist artists, the painting has a companion portrait depicting his lover at the time, Wally Neuzil (the Wally portrait was stolen by the Nazis from the home of a Jewish Austrian, only to be returned to Vienna in 2010 following a prolonged, twelve-year legal battle). It now serves as a "poster child" for the Leopold Museum in Vienna, which houses the largest Schiele collection in the world.

Egon Schiele, Self-Portrait with Striped Shirt, 1910, Black chalk and gouache on paper, 44 x 31 cm, Leopold Museum, Vienna.
Egon Schiele, 1890-1918, was a prolific Austrian artist noted for his obsessive exploration of the human body. He regarded drawing as his primary art form and created some three thousand drawings over the course of his career. He focused mainly on portraits, exploring the subjects’ psyche and sexuality. Although he was influenced by the linear, two-dimensional style of his mentor Gustav Klimt & the Vienna Secessionist who spoke out against academic conventions, he developed his own unique style. He is known for depicting isolated and fragile figures, contorted bodies, irregular contours, a somber palette, unusual perspectives and controversial erotic subject matter. In his numerous self-portraits, Schiele is usually staring directly to us viewers. Self-Portrait with Striped Shirt is my favorite of the self-portraits and has all the characteristics of his signature graphic style. He made it when he was only 20 years old. Even though Schiele was a prolific artist and one of the leading figures of Austrian Expressionism, his career ended tragically. He died when he was 28 as a victim of the Spanish flu.
