Artist of the Day- Egon Schiele (click on image to see more)

Schiele is known for his ...sometimes... erotic life drawings. Man could he draw! There is a looseness and ease to his lines. His mark making is so recognizable. I've included a couple of self portraits. His images are somehow so troubling. Schiele began art school at 16.He was mentored by the artist Gustave Klimt.He died of the Spanish Flu when he was 28, three days after his wife who was pregnant with their first child.
