The early Modern Austrian painter Egon Schiele's portraiture work is stunning, haunting &   erotic. His jaggedly bold lines not only create the shape of his subjects, but expressively emanates their being. Whether his subjects are nude, or draped in thin yet bold fabrics, Schiele creates a subject that seduces the viewer. Personally, I am drawn to all his work, landscapes & portraits, but his women really resonate with me. As a female his work intrigues me. The male gaze is blatantly evident, yet these paintings remain mysterious, graceful & intriguing. During the Modernist period, Schiele was breaking the boundaries of what gallery acceptability was & apart of the ever changing traditional standards of painting itself.
