    Egon Schiele. The Paintings. 40th Ed.

    Original price was: R750.Current price is: R675.

Being a child prodigy quite aware of his own genius and a passionate provocateur, this didn’t prove to be too big a challenge.

Instead, Schiele’s work spoke of a brutal honesty, one that would upset and irreversibly change Viennese society.
