Egon Schiele (1890 – 1918) was an Austrian painter and a protégé of Gustav Klimt. Egon Schiele was the 'enfant terrible' of the Viennese avant-garde.   Schiele's Expressionist figurative works on themes like budding sexuality, death and decay scandalised early 20th-century Vienna. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.   The Leopold Museum, Vienna houses Schiele's most important and complete collection of work.
