5.0 out of 5 stars A Potted Egon Schiele, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Egon Schiele (Reveries) (Hardcover)
Though not an artist to everyone's taste (considered by some to be amateurish and by others, pornographic) once you get into Schiele you can see what a marvellous draughtsman he was, and how unique. As an introduction to the man and his work, this book offers a potted view better than most. Not particularly well written (or, perhaps, translated) the prose style is somewhat archaic but the reproductions are clear and represent a good cross-section of his drawings and paintings, be it landscape or figure study. The price is very attractive, as most art books these days seem to be extortionately expensive, and I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to "dip their feet" into the man and his art. One criticism I would have, however, is the choice of small print on coloured paper for the text. You might need a strong light and a magnifying glass in order to read one or two of the pages. That not withstanding, good value indeed.
