Egon Schiele and his legacy

Albertina Modern Gallery is holding an exhibition "Egon Schiele and his legacy.".

In an exhibition of more than 130 works, Schiele's work is presented together with works by eleven contemporary artists: Georg Baselitz, Günter Brus, Jim Dine, VALIE EXPORT, Elke Silvia Kristufek, Maria Lassnig, Arnulf Rainer, Cindy Sherman, Karin Mack, Adriana Cernin and Erwin Wurm.

The exhibition takes the viewer on a mysterious journey inside themselves. It begins with 21 of Egon Schiele's groundbreaking self-portraits and body images. The author, who became widely known only in the post-war era thanks to the United States, paved the way for generations of distinguished artists. His works, with their ruthless severity, mark a radical departure from the cult of beauty nurtured by the Vienna Secession and the end of the century in general. And his self-portraits portray him as an unhappy and rejected artist.

Prepared according to the materials of the website Albertina Galleries.
