Item description for Egon Schiele: The Ronald S. Lauder And Serge Sabarsky Collections by Renee Price...
Breathtaking paintings and drawings from the Neue Galerie New York, which holds the largest collection of works by Egon Schiele in any American public museum, are included in this sumptuously illustrated book.
Austrian Expressionist painter Egon Schiele was one of the greatest artists of the twentieth century. While his explicit nudes and self-portraits created controversy in Europe and America, his skill as a draftsman and his artistic passion are unquestionable. In addition to presenting superb reproductions of more than 150 paintings and drawings in the collection, this monograph traces the history of Schiele's reception in the American art world. It offers fascinating background information concerning Schiele collectors, promoters, critics, and followers, as well as the exhibitions, public acquisitions, publications, and other projects relating to the artist that have taken place in the United States. Essays pertaining to Schiele's life in Austria, the lost Schiele collections, and the censorship of the artist during and after his lifetime round out this stunning volume.

Absolute Eye Candy Apr 19, 2006
If you are buying this book because you are an artist or an art student and you really like Egon's art...you are going to love this book! The quality of the illustrations are excellent. They are large and the color is perfect. If you want eye candy more than something to read, again this book is perfect. I thought the book contained just enough text to make you knowledgeable but left lots of room for really nice photographic material.
