A very readable book, the text provides a year by year account of the artist's progress; his family situation and personal life, his education and development as an artist and what influenced him. It is an intelligent and reasoned account.
The vast bulk of the book however is taken up with the drawings and watercolours. All the images are reproduced in full colour, including the monochrome drawings. It contains over three hundred illustrations which, with the exception of those illustrating the text, are presented one to a page, with the a few double page spreads. The printing is excellent and the images appear rich and strong, well conveying the subtle textures evident in the artist's work.
This is a most handsome volume, fairly modest in dimensions, but at nearly 500 pages certainly not in content. It is beautifully produced and presented; the choice of font for the text has quite obviously been given careful consideration, and perfectly complements Schiele's drawings. The images combined with the sensitively written text cannot but draw one to Schiele, and highlight what a tragic loss that he should enjoy such a short life. If anyone has any doubts about the genius of Egon Schile, a little time spent perusing this splendid book will surely put that to rights.
It is chronologically arranged. Over 300 full page images all in their original colour (excellent reproductions). Each chapter is arranged by year with a description of the artists life at the time followed by the drawings.
It is well written, to the point and informative. The text size and layout make it a joy to read.
(Please note: If you are unfamiliar with Schiele's work it may be worth noting it's graphic content, which may not be to everyone's taste, however, if you're a fan, it's a must have.)

Perfect gift for true Egons's lover. The format could be better but the drawings mostly fill the whole page and the quality is ok. The book is really thick and heavy.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
