5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent overview of one of Modern's cutting edge artists, May 8, 2001
This review is from: Egon Schiele (Big Series Art) (Hardcover)
Jammed with photos of Schiele, the different subjects and styles from his short career, and background information. This book also serves as a biography in many ways. Schiele's style is full of life's decay and resurrection. His work is only seen as being decadent because we have alienated ourselves so completely from nature and human nature. The natural decay of life is only ugly when one thinks one is above it all or removed from the process. His young nude girls have a silken decadence that glimpses into our natural beauty and being. Instead of turning from the mirror when one sees something less than what one wants to see, Schiele turns the spotlight on until the image is engraved into our psyche. The power of his colors and strokes and images are second to none. He's controversial. But so is Darwin. He tells us things we don't want to hear or see.

This is exactly the same review-word for word-for Egon Schiele (World of Art) Paperback - February 17, 1985, by Frank Whitford, even though it's a different book & a different publishing company.
