By Benjamin TOP 500 REVIEWER on 6 Feb. 2008
Format: Hardcover
Following the introduction, the book is arranged chronologically; the first chapter covering the years up to 1907 when the artist was seventeen, followed by 1908-1909, with the successive chapters covering a year each up to 1918. The chapters open with about six or seven pages of illustrated text, to be followed by the relevant drawings; there is no bibliography.

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.

22.90 x 15.20 cm this book is small, however, the content is incredible (496pp)

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.)

Format: Hardcover
This is a book that gives the reader a unique opportunity to discover Schiele's art through his works on paper (which, in my opinion, convey a much better idea of the importance of this artist than his paintings do). There is a lightness in these works and, at the same time, an urge to express the uneasiness, the anguish that the artist feels towards the outside world, that is very well shown in the book, through countless high-quality reproductions. The text is very sensible and was written by the leading authority on Egon Schiele.

Highly recommended.

By R de Bulat TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 24 Aug. 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a hefty volume of almost 500 pages with good quality reproductions of Schiele's drawings and water colours, almost all. but not totally so, of the human body, with a well written text describing his short life. His output was incredible as was his mastery of line and great sensitivity in portraying the human condition in its ugliness and beauty, passions, joyful and despairing. Much of the work involves considerable sexual posturing, but not all of the works are so oriented: there are portraits and studies of both adults and children that are simple, but expressive; all of the works are powerful and reproduced well and in colour. Few of these works were exhibited in is lifetime and many look as if they are sketchbook works rather than commissions, providing an insight into the creative processes of a great artist.

Bought for the wife's birthday as she is an admirer of the artist's work and we had recently been to his exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery in London. Book arrived promptly and the wife loves it. Great colour plates and background analysis. A must for all Schiele fans.
