Egon Schiele’s career was short and intense. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, he made artworks which tried to depict the psychological world as well as examining the female figure in an analytical and detached way. With particular reference to Schiele’s life-drawings and self-portraits, this course will allow students to explore his working methods and artistic responses to the model. Using a series of linked classes with exercises on line, composition, and gesture, this short course will look at how Schiele’s drawings can still be shocking and provocative.
