Intro to Egon Schiele: Twisted Romanticism

Egon Schiele practiced a twisted romanticism. While his artist’s eye was drawn to beauty, something compelled him toward distortion. Beauty plays off distortion in his work. Legs Malone would have made a great model for him. The root images for this animation are a painting by Egon Schiele and a photograph of Legs Malone.
