Egon Schiele Pathways to a Collection

In 1918 the Belvedere Museum in Vienna became the first Austrian museum to acquire an oil painting by Egon Schiele during his lifetime. Now, a century later, the museum owns one of the top collections of paintings from the artist’s final decade of works.

This volume presents the highlights of the museum’s Schiele collection, including some of the artist’s most beloved paintings, such as “Eduard Kosmack,” “House Wall,” “Death and Girl,” and “The Embrace and Four Trees.” Dazzlingly illustrated throughout, the book provides an opportunity to study the artist’s paintings in greater detail and to follow the fascinating routes taken by his works before reaching the museum, and beyond.

Product story

Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna is a unique opportunity to see extraordinary drawings produced by both artists, considered to be some of the 20th century’s most important works on paper. Among them are Klimt’s sketches for his seminal Beethoven Frieze, and unflinching self-portraits by Schiele, which due to their delicacy will not see the light of day again for many years. In around 100 portraits, allegories, landscapes and erotic nudes, prepare to encounter these two icons of early Modernism at their most raw and revealing.

Klimt / Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna is on at The Royal Academy of Arts in The Sackler Wing of Galleries from 4 November 2018 — 3 February 2019.
