1911 / oil on canvas / 79.5 x 80 cm
Most people think of erotic, slightly disturbing work when they think of Egon Schiele but he also painted some intricate and dynamic land and cityscapes. This is one of them. Yes, it is a limited palette and has a spare feel but I think it's absolutely exquisite. Look at how those branches are so sensitively seen!
On another note, I got home this evening from a weekend at the Port Credit Art Show. Wow - was it hot! I hope to have some photos to post tomorrow. I met a lot of great people ; ) To all those who are reading today for the first time - thank you for stopping by booth and for your interest in my work. I'll be back with a new painting tomorrow!
