Celebrating 100 years of Egon Schiele
When: February 23 – November 4
Where: Leopold Museum
Entry: 13€ (9€ students)
Egon Schiele is a rock star in terms of modernist painters and his groupies are aplenty. And to honor one of the leading forces in the modernist movement, the Leopold Museum is currently presenting over 40 paintings and 180 works on paper by the very talented Austrian painter. This exhibition will tell the story of how the artist’s work developed, and how he was influenced by other great artists of this period. The museum’s founder, Rudolf Leopold, was a great admirer of Schiele’s radically expressive phase, so it’s more than apt that the gallery holds an exhibition in good old Egon’s name, especially as this year also marks the 100-year-anniversary of Schiele’s death.
