Egon Schiele. Catalogue Raisonne. Third Edition.

By Rudolph Leopold 

One of the most lavishly illustrated collections of Egon Schiele’s work ever published, presented in an updated new edition. 

In 1972, Austrian collector Rudolf Leopold (1925–2010) published a landmark catalog raisonné of the work of painter Egon Schiele (1890–1918). Long out of print, Leopold’s book now returns in an updated new edition that will introduce the next generation of art lovers to the work of one of Gustav Klimt’s most talented protégés, known for his arresting self-portraits, sexually charged figure drawings, and haunting industrial landscapes. In addition to the color prints of Schiele’s paintings and drawings, this book provides insight into the artist’s life through letters, sketches, and documents, from his adolescence as an art student in fin de siècle Vienna to his death from flu after the close of World War I. Egon Schiele presents Schiele’s paintings, watercolors, and drawings chronologically in large-format color plates, providing a comprehensive overview of the many works Schiele completed in his short life.
