▫️▫️FACES ▫️LIFE ▫️TRUTH ▫️▫️ • For centuries artists have created images of themselves or those around them - selfies, portraits or whatever they leave a lasting legacy and deep imprint of the individuals captured for all time. • Egon Schiele the Austrian painter and protégé of Gustav Klimt, was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work with its intensity and raw sexuality, included many powerfully emotional self-portraits . His twisted body shapes and raw expressive force mark him as an early exponent of Expressionism. • Egon Schiele, "Portrait of a Woman", 1912, Private Collection • #egonschiele #austrian #portrait #woman #expressionism #socialmedia #socialrecord #historicalreference #artislife #faceslifetruth
