Catalogue Note

The work of Egon Schiele has established itself as one of the most representative examples of Austrian Expressionism. The artist developed his fascination for the nude in 1910 and never ceased to explore its erotic potential and sexual urges as a new artistic language. Painted in 1914, this important double drawing in pencil captures a woman in her most intimate postures. Egon Schiele deploys his art here and offers the spectator images tinged with a great sensitivity and endowed with an unequivocal eroticism. The artist’s obsession for the human body, its curves and the energy it releases, is enhanced in these representations of desire and intense exhibitionism.
