Self-portrait with hands to the chest - Egon Schiele

Painted in watercolor and charcoal, this self-portrait of Egon Schiele focuses on his head and hands. The rest of his body is a simple sketch without detail. Very inclined to introspection and the search for his deepest self, the artist represents himself without taboos, as he sees himself, with a certain femininity in the position of his hands. The expression of his face, casual, even shameless, seems to show his indifference towards the judgments that one could make on him.

The artist

Egon Schiele (Austrian, born June 12, 1890 in Tulln an der Donau - died October 31, 1918 in Vienna) is a major figure of Austrian expressionism. Despite a short career, Schiele's prolific work paved the way for modernism. He is best known for his figurative works, self-portraits and portraits that express a deeply personal and radical aesthetic. Schiele began his artistic career at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in 1906, leaving in 1909 to form the Neukunstgruppe, the Group for New Art, with classmates who shared his disdain for the Academy's curriculum. It was during this time that he met Gustav Klimt (Austrian, 1862-1918), Schiele's future mentor and supporter; Klimt helped Schiele participate in the Vienna Kunstschau (International Exhibition of Fine Arts) in 1909.
