Egon Schiele's Sketchbook 1910-1913

Egon Schiele's Sketchbook 1910-1913

Egon Schiele usually carried a small sketchbook with him, jotting down his compositional ideas and other personal notions on the go. This facsimile edition provides unusual insight into the artist's mind and working methods. Twenty-two of these small scale sketchbooks are known to have survived. Most of them are now preserved in the Egon Schiele Archiv of the Albertina in Vienna. The one reproduced here includes sketches for a number of important paintings from this period. In addition to the numerous drawings relating to Schiele’s artistic oeuvre, there are several architectural sketches among the pages. There are also fashion sketches, miscellaneous notations, addresses, and calculations.

A reproduction based on the original from the Serge Sabarsky collection. Limited edition, numbered set of 1000 Neue Galerie exclusive
