Egon Schiele and The Leopold Collection, Vienna

Egon Schiele: The Leopold Collection, Vienna
by Magdalena Dabrowski (Author), Rudolf Leopold (Author)
Buy on Amazon

Expressionist painter Schiele (1890-1918) broke away from the decorative Vienna Secession style, especially that of Gustav Klimt, and developed his own technique using simple lines and bold colors to express intensity of emotions, suffering, and isolation. I am an avid collector of his books. This beautiful book discusses and reproduces 150 of Schiele`s paintings, watercolors, gouaches, and drawings from the Leopold collection, which can now be seen in the new Schiele Museum in Austria.
