Schiele was clearly a very disturbed soul which is often obvious in his work. I look forward to hearing your thoughts after seeing the exhibit.
For my naivity, being the first time I have seen such a large number of his paintings at one time, it perhaps might have been more...oh, I don't know...enlightening, maybe?....if other than his nudes were shown along side these. There were some stunners, clever use of form, abbreviated coloring to great effect...but at least one I simply could have done without, the prepubescent girl, spread eagled. I'm the richer for going, though, and look forward to reading the book I bought on him.
Jabe, Balthus took it to an entire new level in my opinion.
