151 Illustrations, 20 in Colour - About 35 Full Page
on 12 February 2015
Unfortunately I wanted as many colour as possible. I already have the Egon Schiele Landscapes and that is streets ahead of this one for coloured pictures and comes highly recommended (by me).
This review is purely to help others out wondering, like I did, about how many colour illustrations there are, and not a critique of the writing, I suggest you read the other reviews for that, which, if you want quality writing on art and less on the quality of the pictures, then by other people's reviews, this book is very good. The pictures they do have, in B&W and colour, are not even the ones I like the most. I just hope it's a damn fine read.
I could go on about, why produce these pictures in B&W, but I'll stop there, and leave you with my recommendation, if you want coloured visuals, then suggest you look for another book, or better still, go to the Leopold Gallery in Vienna. I recognise that it's my mistake picking an unseen book and relying on reviews, and I paid for it. I hope I have helped someone else looking for an indication about the pictures within, the same as I was.
