Format: Hardcover
A chronological presentation of Egon Shielle's landscape paintings, commencing with works produced when he was only sixteen. Each painting is reproduced in colour on one page with brief informative explanatory notes on the facing page, and invariably with additional photographs usually of the actual scene depicted in the painting, and occasionally Shielle's own preliminary sketches. The book concludes with a brief illustrated biography, and bibliography. A most informative and beautifully illustrated publication with text kept to a minimum and free from pompous waffle.

i bought this book because i love egon schiele's way in which he draws his semi nudes...i was not disappointed this is a wonderful book with beautiful colour illustrations, some gorgeous sketches in black and white with the text easy to read. If you like schiele you will love this book.
It was delivered beautifully wrapped in tissue i am thoroughly chuffed!

If, like me, you're a Schiele fan, then this is for you. His landscapes are just as interesting as his figures and portraits: just as original, quirky and simply fascinating. Check out Krumau (or, in Czech, Ceský Krumlov, the town Schiele did many studies of) on Google Maps and Google Images: fascinating to contrast the reality with what he made of the place. A plus in the book is that contemporary photographs (contemporary with Schiele) of the town are shown with the drawings. Great stuff.

I hadn't seen much of Schiele's landscape painting and this book is a revelation. Excellent photographs and text which show his experimental way of working. Very contemporary and useful for my painting development. I love his layering of paint colour and texture.

Bought this after reading and studying a similar book on Gustav Klimt. This book was equally as well produced and I would have given it five stars had Schiele's work been quite as inspiring as Klimt.

good selection of illustrations and well produced book. many of the images are more like sketches, but it does show how schiele constructed a composition. schiele not much known as a landscape painter, but the book should be of interest to landscape artists.

Format: Paperback
The illustrations are the undoubted strength of this superb book. It reproduces much of Schiele's landscape production in colour; indeed, nearly all of the works are accompanied by reference photographs showing the exact scene depicted. In this the author performs a valuable service to his readers: one can cross-check between scene and final composition, assessing how Schiele adapted and processed the motif to transform it into art.

What this otherwise fine book lacks - and does need - is an introductory discussion of Schiele's ideas about how the landscape was to be represented, showing how these views influenced the design of his striking pictures. The textual notes accompanying each work are slender, and remain narrowly descriptive, so they do not explain much. (I had to use Wolfgang Fischer's Schiele to learn what the artist set out to do with his landscapes.) The need for an illuminating and analytical introduction is why I give the book 4½ stars.

I was only recently introduced to this artist's landscapes and am so glad that I now have the book in my possession.
