Description:
Egon Schiele 1890 - 1918 WEIBLICHER AKT MIT GESPREIZTEN BEINEN (FEMALE NUDE WITH LEGS SPREAD) signed Egon Schiele and dated 1918 (lower right) black crayon on paper sight size: 41.2 by 26.7cm.; 16 1/4  by 10 3/8 in. sheet size: 46.5 by 29.5cm.; 18 1/4 by 11 5/8 in. Drawn in 1918. Provenance Acquired by the family of the present owner in the 1950sLiterature Jane Kallir, Egon Schiele: The Complete Works , London, 1998, no. 2341, illustrated p. 622 Weiblicher Akt mit gespreizten Beinen belongs to a small group of drawings dating from 1918 that appear to show a similar model in a variety of poses. Alessandra Comini has suggested the subject of one of the drawings from this group (Kallir, no.  2343, now in the Tel Aviv Museum of Art) is the artist’’’’’’’’s sister-in-law Adele Harms (fig. 1). Whether or not this is the case, the great appeal of the present work lies in the remarkable character with which Schiele imbues his subject. In most of the artist’’’’’’’’s later depictions of nude or half-clothed models the face is partially, or even completely, obscured. His women look into the distance, or turning away glance demurely downwards, or are simply hidden by the arrangement of their bodies; in striking contrast in the present composition the model gazes frankly and provocatively out at the viewer.  As Jane Kallir wrote: ‘Schiele’’’’’’’’s women are, by 1917-18, thoroughly modern. Like most modern women, they own their sexuality. The nude and semi-nude models take pride in their seductive bodies and are empowered by their allure... Nor are they projections of the artist’’’’’’’’s ego. They combine the mystery and the specificity of complete, independent human beings’’’’’’’’ (J. Kallir,  Egon Schiele’’’’’’’’s Women , Munich, 2012, p. 266). The model of the present work embodies this completely; she is seductive but not brazen, the quick intelligence in her eyes and the confidence of her posture suggest a self-possession which is not often a feature of Schiele’’’’’’’’s earlier nudes. The model’’’’’’’’s figure is outlined in unbroken, emphatic lines of black crayon. In the later drawings Schiele achieved a fluidity that matched the confidence of his subjects. Kallir observes of his late work: ‘Always a speedy worker, Schiele had finally found the perfect line. In 1917 and 1918, he was usually able to capture his subject with a single, virtually unbroken sweep of his crayon [...]. In his works on paper, he became more and more focused on the qualities of drawing as such, and therefore relatively few of his 1918 studies are coloured. Instead, he was increasingly interested in sculpting volume, embellishing interior details with curious little loops [...] in these drawings Schiele achieved an unprecedented degree of accuracy’’’’’’’’ (J. Kallir, Egon Schiele. Drawings and Watercolours , London, 2003, pp. 441-442).

The height is about 28 cm. Egon Schiele (1890-1918) Egon Schiele is one of the most significant artists of the Wiener Moderne along with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka. His exceptional talent was discovered early on. Schiele was accepted to the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna at the young age of 16, leaving after only three years to found the Neukunstgruppe in 1909. Influenced by Gustav Klimt, whom he first met in 1907, Schiele soon developed a completely unique style. At the age of 20, he was already a mature artist. After leaving Vienna in 1911, Schiele experienced one of his most productive periods. His lifestyle, however, was seen as scandalous outside the capital. He was even imprisoned due to 'public immorality'. Upon his return to Vienna in 1917, Schiele's artistic output reached another point of culmination. Schiele achieved his breakthrough in 1918 with a group exhibition of the Vienna Secession. He subsequently participated in "A Century of Viennese Painting" at the Kunsthaus Zürich as well as in shows in Prague and Dresden. Egon Schiele's works, which are connected like no other artist with his biography, are among the most important of modernity and achieve maximum prices at international auctions. (cko)
