Egon Schiele

2 05 2012

No artist that I have looked at recently has made his obsession seem so unpleasant. Not to say I don’t love this guy’s work. It is marvelous. And I imagine that his sexual interests must have created quite a controversy. Still you can see that the artist seems to be of two minds about sex. Certainly his work is not erotic. At least not in the fantasy level of Playboy magazine for example. These are not the girl next door.
