Egon Schiele; 1890-1918, Austrian painter, studied at the School of Arts and Crafts in Vienna, the same school where Gustav Klimt studied and where Adolf Hitler was rejected in 1907.A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. In 1909 Klimt invited Schiele to exhibit his work at the Vienna Kunstschau where he encountered the work of Edward Munch & Van Gogh. His work is noted for its intensity and its raw sexuality. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele's paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism.
