Lot 98: Egon Schiele, Signed Portfolio 'Zeichnungen', 12 Heliotypes Egon Schiele (1890-1918) Description: 12 heliotypes on paper, in original cardboard portfolio with title illustration Austria, Vienna, 1917 Egon Schiele (1890-1918) - Austrian artist Signed and dated on the table of contents 'Egon Schiele. 1917' in Indian ink Limited edition of 400, this copy is numbered '14' Printed by Max Jaffé, Vienna, published by Richard Lány, Vienna; Dimensions of the portfolio: 51 x 35 cm Sheet sizes from 45.4 x 29.2 cm to 32 x 49 cm Good condition As complete and well preserved copies of this portfolio are scarce, another copy fetched nearly 30,000 Euros at Auctionata's 'Fine Arts' auction in June 2013 This portfolio bears the simple title 'Zeichnungen' (Drawings) and comprises twelve heliotypes after drawings by Egon Schiele. As indicated on the imprint of the title sheet, these were executed by the renowned printer Max Jaffé under Egon Schiele's supervision in a single edition of four hundred copies. To ensure the uniqueness of this edition, the negatives and printing plates were subsequently destroyed. The imprint bears the handwritten edition number '14' as well as the artist's signature and the date, 'Egon Schiele. 1917' in Indian ink. The heliotypes depict Schiele portraits and nudes from the years 1913-1917. The wide variety allows a unique insight into the artist's creative output. Depicted are young ladies with partly lascivious, partly longing looks, men with expressive faces and seductively contorted naked bodies. The enormous expressiveness, typical of Schiele's work, is not lessened in these monochrome prints. A particular eye-catcher is the reproduction of the gouache 'Two Girls Lying Entwined' from 1915, today housed in the Graphic Art Collection of the Albertina in Vienna. The viewer is invited to voyeuristically share an erotic scene with two sensuously entangled women, one naked, one opulently dressed. The reproductions are all printed in the drawings' original sizes, which accounts for the different dimensions of the sheets. The portfolio was printed in 1917, one year before Schiele's early death, under the artist's supervision as a limited edition of 400 copies. Underneath the table of contents this portfolio is numbered '14'.as well as signed and dated by hand 'Egon Schiele. 1917'. The heliotypes show pale time staining and are overall in very good condition. The portfolio with illustrated cover with some smaller abrasions and small creases at the corners. The portfolio measures 51 x 35 cm. The sheets measure from 45.4 x 29.2 cm to 32 x 49 cm. Table of contents: I. Sitzende Frau mit hochgezogenem Knie, 1917 II. Männlicher Akt mit Rotem Tuch, 1914 IV.

Kniender weiblicher Halbakt, 1917 Egon Schiele (1890-1918) Egon Schiele, along with Gustav Klimt and Oskar Kokoschka, is one of the most significant artists of the Wiener Moderne. 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. In the same year four of his artworks were exhibited at the Internationale Kunstschau. 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 on charges of 'public immorality'. Schiele served in the Austrian army during World War I. During his first months of service he had an intermittent access to his Vienna studio. In 1916, however, he was transferred to a POW camp in a remote rural community, and found less time for creative work. Only upon his return to Vienna in 1917 did Schiele's artistic output return to its prior level. In 1917 and 1918, his work was shown in Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Helsinki. Schiele achieved his breakthrough in 1918 with a group exhibition of the Vienna Secession, where he was able to present a wide selection of paintings and drawings. He subsequently participated in 'A Century of Viennese Painting' at the Kunsthaus Zurich as well as shows in Prague and Dresden. The 28-year-old had just reached the peak of his success when the Spanish Flu took his life along with that of his pregnant wife Edith.
