The folds of her garment are much like the folds of a womans genitalia. Very subtle. She is inviting but demure. Probably how he liked his women, passive aggressive.
this spring i saw an exhibit of his work at the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. stunning work. directly in the vein of Van Gogh, which is why the exhibit was there.
I knew it wasn't his, but at first glance I thought of Degas. It seems to have a hint of the Ballerina, mixed with a hint of one of the ladies bathing.
How Interesting! While I can see Van Gogh and Degas influence, to me, it has more Toulouse. Especially the hardness of her face and the pose. I like it and shall look for more of his work.
Schiele was a master of capturing the mood and sexual tension of these moments with his unique illustrations of women. He was an artist that rose above the mundane and gave the viewer a treat - Bravo Schiele. —ZAC
