To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Egon Schiele, the Albertina has mounted a
comprehensive exhibition of
artworks by Egon Schiele that positions his radical oeuvre within an
epoch characterised by a schism between the modernist and the
traditional. 160 of Schiele’s most magnificent gouaches and drawings
will introduce viewers to an artistic oeuvre that highlights human
beings’ existential loneliness as its great theme while drastically
opposing the values of fin de siècle society.
