An oeuvre at odds with fin-de-siècle society

Club members were introduced to the radical oeuvre of Egon Schiele (1890-1918) which is currently being exhibited at the Albertina.

Schiele’s works – juxtapposed to photographs of his time – gave us a glimpse of the epochal schism between the modernist and the traditional. With only a few lines he produced drawings of precision and astounding beauty,

tells coordinator Martha Hanreich.
