Re-discover intimate portraits by Egon Schiele

October 2018 marks 100 years since the death of Egon Schiele (12 June 1890 – 31 October 1918)

When Austrian artist Egon Schiele died of Spanish flu in 1918, he left behind an incredible body of work. At times explicit, grotesque and twisted, his art is defined by its brutality and its honesty. akg-images has an impressive collection of paintings and drawings by Schiele, including many of his stunning portraits and self-portraits.
