Egon Schiele : A Must-see Exhibition at FLV Paris

Egon Schiele : A Must-see Exhibition at FLV Paris

When it comes to the masters of expressionism in the early 20th century, there are a few names that would immediately come to mind. The same is true when we consider the leading artists of Vienna from the period. However, the name Egon Schiele isn’t as well known with the general public. Klimt is the household name of this Viennese period. People are drawn to his use of gold and striking period pieces. In fact, there was a popular digital exhibition on his work in Paris this year. Back then, art lovers were encouraged to deconstruct and analyse Klimt’s work with fresh eyes. Now the same is true at a striking retrospective of Schiele’s work at the Fondation Louis Vuitton. 

Schiele may not be as well known as Klimt, but it is impossible to forget this work once you see it. The bold images and distorted nudes in this vast exhibition will stick with visitors for a long time to come.

The show continues in this gallery until January 14th.
