Egon Schiele. Works of the Albertina Museum, Vienna


The Egon Schiele exhibition at Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum, whose curator was Klaus Albrecht Schröder, offered its visitors an approximation to the creative universe of this Viennese artist of the early 20th century. Around a hundred drawings, gouaches, watercolours and photographs from the collection of the Albertina Museum of Vienna showcased a perspective of Schiele’s stylistic evolution over the barely ten productive years of his artistic career, which was prematurely interrupted at the age of 28 years. It included works produced during his training at the Vienna Academy as well as others in which one can discern the influence that Gustav Klimt or Modernism exerted on Schiele. It finally included works from his last years of breaking away from naturalism, with a radical treatment of colour and new and disconcerting motifs such as the explicit erotic nude or children’s portraits.
