About the book

Simon Wilson discusses Schiele's role in the development of Expressionism and his vision of the artist in society. The Austrian painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was a central figure in his time and of fundamental importance to the birth of modern art. His uncompromising style of expression gave form to the anxieties and insecurities that beset Western culture at the turn of the century.

In this beautifully presented and intellectually stimulating volume, Simon Wilson offers a succinct and memorably sophisticated insight into the particular question of Schiele's role in the evolution of the Expressionist movement.
