Description:
Egon Schiele AKT (NUDE) AUSTRIAN, 1890 - 1918 signed with the artist's monogram and dated 1917 (towards lower left) charcoal and gouache on paper 44.4 by 29cm., 17 1/2 by 11 3/8 in. Executed in 1917. According to Jane Kallir, this work has been coloured by another hand at a later date. Provenance Piccadilly Gallery, London Sale: Christie’’’’’’’’s, London, 28th November 1989, lot 147 Sale: Villa Grisebach, Berlin, 27th May 1994, lot 27 Purchased at the above sale by the present owner Literature Jane Kallir, Egon Schiele, The Complete Works, New York, 1990, no. 2059, illustrated p. 588 Catalogue Note Egon Schiele’’’’’’’’s Akt (Nude), executed in 1917, is a prime example of the artist’’’’’’’’s late work. In 1917 Schiele returned to Vienna, following his military service during the First World War, and was able to focus on his artistic career. He devoted much of his time to drawing nudes, his ever improving financial situation allowing him increasingly to work with professional models. These changing circumstances correspond to a marked development in the artist’’’’’’’’s style and the present work is a clear departure from the artist’’’’’’’’s early nudes. Schiele no longer crops the figure radically nor does the drawing carry any overtly erotic connotations. Rather, Schiele portrays the body intact displaying a tendency towards ever greater realism, which is in line with his drawings and watercolours post-1914. Most of his effort is now directed towards capturing the plasticity of the human form, the density of the human flesh and the solidity of muscle. To this end he employs black crayon, which produces a denser and more tangible contour. Schiele sets the figure on the page with unflinching confidence, allowing her to be without support or visible context – a stylistic practice that has become synonymous with Schiele’’’’’’’’s entire œuvre. Schiele’’’’’’’’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and fearless depictions of the naked figure distinguish his nudes as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art. His work reflected the maturity of an artist in full command of his talents. Schiele’’’’’’’’s drawings of the body have become signifiers of his life and work. More than a century has passed since the Austrian enfant terrible Egon Schiele began the drawings and paintings for which he would become famous – yet not one has lost any of its devilish power to provoke, disturb, or shock. comp: 900L17322_8ST7N_comp caption: Egon Schiele, 1918.

The present work was executed after Schiele was finally released from his military duties and only one year before his premature death at the age of twenty-eight. Schiele returned to Vienna with a refreshed artistic vigor that he expressed to his brother-in-law, Anton Peschka, in January 1917: “I want to start anew… until now I have just been preparing the tools” (quoted in Jane Kallir, Egon Schiele, Drawings & Watercolours, London, 2003, p. 384). This was indeed the start of a period of great creative prolificacy and professional stability for Schiele, who had reached both an artistic and emotional maturity. Evident in his drawings of female nudes is a return to classical ideals including a shift toward realism and the depiction of three-dimensional forms that resulted in rounder and softer women. While still maintaining their powerful expressiveness, these nudes do not possess the same erotic anxiety of his earlier works and, instead, radiate a more timeless beauty. Schiele depicts the woman with a delightful clarity of line that is characteristic of his late drawings. Jane Kallir praises Schiele’’’’’’’’s draughtsmanship by stating, “Few artists in history have managed to express the spirit of their subjects with such economy of means. In his nudes, Schiele strove for purity of form; in his portraits, for purity of being. With the precision of stop-action photography, Schiele could catch a moving body, or the flicker of emotion—a quivering lip, a furrowed brow—as it passed fleetingly across a sitter’’’’’’’’s face. In this, he ranks alongside such artists as Hans Holbein as one of the greatest draughstmen of all times. Because Schiele plumbed the very souls of his subjects, his drawings remain as fresh and vital today as they were when made” (ibid., p. 442). The artist’’’’’’’’s fascination with depicting the human figure can be dated back to as early as 1910, but his later drawings of women, such as the present work, are truly displays of the pleasure he found in his quest to render beauty. Schiele masterfully renders this female nude with crisp lines that artfully capture her casual sensuousness and exemplify the artist’’’’’’’’s unique understanding of the human form and character. Kallir has also noted that these late drawings are among Schiele's best and most appealing: "Schiele—and by extension the viewer—are no longer participants in a process of sexual exploration, but merely voyeurs. It is not a coincidence that nudes from Schiele's late period have for years been much sought after by collectors. These women are exquisite objects of delectation" (ibid., p. 390).
