Description
Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) - Portrait of a woman from 1911
Original helio-gravure - Signed on print - 1911; 1940/50

After Egon Schiele. Provenance : small edition published in Vienna by the State Print Office of Austria (Staatsdruckerei Östereich) on high quality paper, late 1940s / early 1950s ; private collection, London.

The print, which demonstrates Schiele's distinctive style, is very well preserved. Is has not ever been framed; it has been stored in an archive and therefore not exposed to light throughout the 70+ years since it was was printed.

Very difficult to find as the majority are in institutions and private collections.

Single prints from the same edition have sold for more than €1500 on Catawiki.

The print will be carefully and professionally packaged with suitable protection, insured and shipped with tracking.

Egon Schiele has become one of the world's most celebrated artists - and is held in the same high esteem as the likes of Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso - since participating in the Vienna Secession alongside Oskar Kokoschka and Gustav Klimt.
