By Serge Sabarsky

Regarded as one of the preeminent draftsmen of the twentieth century, Egon Schiele is most widely known for the paintings of nudes that he produced throughout his brief career. These exquisitely rendered works, with their compelling use of color and line, have long been objects of fascination for both art lovers and connoisseurs of erotica.

Forty-one of Schiele's nudes -- thirty-five watercolors and six drawings -- are represented in this beautiful volume. They range in date from 1910, directly after the young Schiele's break from the Viennese Art Academy, to 1918, the year of his premature death at the age of twenty-eight. The works are all meticulously reproduced as lavish full-page color plates and are introduced by Serge Sabarsky's critical preface. This exciting selection of rarely reproduced works is certain to impress upon the reader the singular vision and consummate draftsmanship of one of the twentieth century's most remarkable artists.
