The Death and the Maiden

 

Egon Schiele ( 1890 - 1918) was an austrian painter and engraver. His work is known for its expressive intensity, psychological introspection and communication of the inner distress through his numerous portraits.

His subject are men and women who often pose naked, they are the symbol of his complex relationship with the female sex: twisted bodies, many unfinished figures, portraits and self-portraits. He tries to paint the pathos by exposing the unconscious and taking a very marked depth from the emotional contours.

Sexuality, for Schiele, is very present in his self-portrait, in the female figures and in lovers.

He shows himself through the nudity which is chaotic, bothering, captivating and not discreet. The breasts take shape and become red and evident. The cheeks are orange and pink, escpecially pale. The poses of women are erotic and they become smug muses just like during a photo shoot. Bodies have neither a beginning nor and end, they melted together overlapping and they free themselves lying in infinite of the white canvas. They freeze and fit forever as if they were dead. The colors are acidic and bright as if they were blue, purple and yellow bruises.
