This lot consists of a hand-painted mixed media on cardboard sketch. Image depicts a woman proud of her sexuality as its usual in Egons works. This lot is attributed to the Austrian Egon Schiele. Egon Schiele (12 June 1890 - 31 October 1918) was an Austrian painter. A protege of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality, and the many self-portraits the artist produced, including naked self-portraits. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.
