impressive...strong accompanying text
a perfect opportunity, then, to see the unseen Schiele. -- Artists and Illustrators, May 2005
Schieles ability with expressionist nudes and erotic women translates to his takes on Austria most wonderfully. -- Darlington & Stockton Times (North Yorkshire), August 19, 2005
From the Inside Flap
Now available in an attractive flexi-cover format, this visually stunning collection of landscape paintings and drawings by Egon Schiele brings to light a little-known aspect of this famous painter's oeuvre. Best known for his depictions of the human form, Schiele was also interested in portraying the beauty and structure of the world he inhabited. In fact, Schiele's paintings of the countryside and his native Vienna comprise a large portion of his body of work. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.See all Product description

It was delivered beautifully wrapped in tissue i am thoroughly chuffed!
The book has my favourite Autumn tree in Turbulent Air, which is great. Other non urban pictures are a couple versions of Sunflowers, Fuschsia Branches, Mountain by the river, Calvary, Autumn trees, Landscape with ravens, Four Trees, Landscape with red sky, Small tree in Late Autumn, Bare trees, Early spring, Setting sun - the work on the cover, little tree, Shrines in the forest. Also, it has Mountain Stream and Decaying Mill. The Bridge oil painting I'm also interested in is disappointingly small only 6cm by 6cm large. Instead on the right page where in my opinion the oil painting should've been, there's this large sketch of the bridge in watercolour and gouache. Inexplicable, really. But that's the only complaint I have regarding layout decisions in this book. It is very well planned and organized otherwise. Good resolution pictures and up close photos. Pictures of Schiele's works are on the right page, and descriptions, photographs of locations, some sketches or curio are on the left mostly. Sometimes they are followed by close up views of some works on a two page spread. Paper is bright white and matt.
I was pleasantly surprised with my paperback cover. It's tougher than expected, not the type of the cover to tear or to crease accidentally.Read more ›
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.
