Egon Schiele (World of Art) (英語) ペーパーバック – 1985/2
Egon Schiele lived in Vienna during the last years of the declining Habsburg Empire. Rejected by his family, hounded by society for his interest in young girls, he expressed through his art a deep and bewildering loneliness and an obsession with sexuality, death and decay. He was only twenty-eight when he died, yet he left behind him a body of work that sustains a huge public reputation--and a myth. This book sets out to examine both. 151 illus., 20 in color.
Frank Whitford was born in 1941 and educated at Wadham College, Oxford, the Courtauld Institute, London and the Freie Universitat, West Berlin. After a career as a journalist and a cartoonist, he taught at University College London, and then in Cambridge, where he is still attached to Wolfson College. Well known as a broadcaster and lecturer, he was for many years Tutor in Cultural History at the Royal College of Art, London. His other books include Klimt and Bauhaus (also in the World of Art Series); Oskar Kokoschka, A Life; Expressionist Paintings and the prize-winning Japanese Prints and Western Painters. --このテキストは、ハードカバー版に関連付けられています。

However, it's still a lovely book and I did enjoy it.
This book on Schiele gives a detailed account of the life that inspired the beautiful paintings. The read isn't difficult but is clearly articulated by Comini. It is evident that her studies were detailed and well thought out.
This book is highly recommended for a couple of reasons. 1) Comini was one of the first scholars to look into the life of Schile and she did a great job of showing how he impacted art. 2) The plates included with the book are all sharp images and are explained in ways you cannot get in any other art book.
Comini has explained the motivations of an often mysterious artist without seeming pretentious. This elusive art can be enjoyed by everyone because of the clear explanations in this beautiful book.
