A lavishly produced volume of Egon Schiele’s self-portraits.
 
Egon Schiele’s contorted and eccentric figures are among the most familiar and iconic images in twentieth-century art. A good many of those figures are self-portraits. Schiele returned to himself as a subject again and again over a period of many years, recording himself in various poses and styles. When he used his own body as a model, his interest often lay not in his actual self, but more generally in the position of the individual in the changing modern world. Posing in a variety of roles, Schiele uses his face like a mask. This beautifully produced book offers a comprehensive account of this crucial, yet underappreciated, aspect of Schiele’s art.
Elisabeth Leopold is cofounder of the Leopold Museum Vienna, curator of numerous exhibitions, and the author of many articles on art and culture in Vienna around 1900.

Stefan Kutzenberger is a writer, literary scholar, and curator who lives in Vienna.
