Egon Schiele (12 June 1890 - 31 October 1918) was an Austrian painter. Schiele was a protégé of Gustav Klimt and an important figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is known for its intensity and its raw sexuality and the many self-portraits that the artist made. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterised Schiele’s work, mark the artist as an early exponent of expressionism.
The printing process is of the highest quality and is almost comparable to the original. Today, there are only three publishing houses in the world that apply this. This technique was mainly used in small editions.
These reproductions will be sent professionally packed between two pressed plates and insured with track and trace code.
