Despite his untimely death over a century ago, Egon Schiele remains very much central to our understanding of art in the 20th century and continues to captivate modern audiences worldwide. In February of 2013, The Leopold Museum, which holds the world’s most comprehensive collection of Schiele’s work, sold three of his sketches in Sotheby’s Impressionist & Modern Art Evening Sale for a combined £14,011,750. In anticipation of this auction, Sotheby’s invited Leopold Museum Director Tobias G. Natter to provide a glimpse into the life and genius of the great artist.
