A groundbreaking exhibition of Egon Schiele’s electrifyingly frank nudes

Egon Schiele (1890-1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism.

This exhibition, held at The Courtauld Gallery from 23 October 2014 to 18 January 2015, brought together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career.

Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.

This sharply-focused exhibition presented a major opportunity to see more than thirty of these radical works assembled from international public and private collections.
