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.

Description:
Egon Schiele (Austrian, 1890-1918) Segelschiff mit Spiegelungen signed and dated 'SCHIELE/EGON/07.' (lower right) watercolour on paper 28.1 x 19cm (11 1/16 x 7 1/2in). Executed in 1907 Footnotes PROVENANCE Private collection, Austria (acquired circa 1988). By descent to the present owner. LITERATURE J. Kallir, Egon Schiele: The Complete Works , New York, 1998, no. 166 (illustrated p. 366). Painted in 1907, Segelschiff mit Spiegelungen and Garten mit baum were executed just a year after Schiele was admitted to the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts as the then youngest pupil at the age of just sixteen. Schiele was a precociously talented student yet he quickly came to find the traditions of the Academy, and in particular the conservative dictates of his tutor Christian Griepenkerl, increasingly irrelevant as he endeavoured to define his own authentic means of expression. When his mother, Marie Schiele, asked Griepenkerl if her son had talent he replied, 'Yes too much. He disrupts the entire class.' (J. Kallir, Egon Schiele: The Complete Works , New York, 1998, p. 44) Consequently, Schiele's enthusiasm for his classes began to wane, and he also increasingly moved away from the prescriptions of the Academy's curriculum to venture into as of yet untaught terrain. As Jane Kallir, author of the artist's catalogue raisonné, writes: 'By the spring of 1907 it becomes virtually impossible to connect any of Schiele's work with any specific academy assignments.' (J. Kallir, op. cit. p. 45) In the summer of 1907 Schiele made frequent trips outside of Vienna with his maternal uncle and guardian Leopold Czihaczec and other members of his family. During these trips he made great progress as a painter, executing small landscapes that he sold to tourists with much success. For the next year painting became a major preoccupation in his work, even though he was not due to begin the 'general painting' class at the Academy until the autumn of 1908, and it was through this media that he first began to explore and establish his own independent style. It is likely that Segelschiff mit Spiegelungen and Garten mit baum issue from this collection of early paintings executed during these summer excursions of 1907. The clear blue sky and blossoms of Garten mit baum are suggestive of the early phases of the season. Meanwhile, the depiction of the sailing boat and its reflections on calm water hints at the summer and its related leisure activities. Segelschiff mit Spiegelungen is likely to have been executed in the coastal city of Trieste to the south-west of Vienna where Schiele made frequent visits during this time, particularly with his favourite sister Gertrude. It is part of a series of paintings that illustrate boats in the port and harbour of this scenic coastal resort, and it was here too that Schiele developed the ingenious technique of scoring into the wet pigment with his pencil; a method that was in clear defiance to the painterly directives of the Academy. These formative yet accomplished watercolours reveal the nascent signs of the rebellious and pioneering spirit that was to characterise Schiele's short but prolific career. They issue from the pivotal moment in which he begins to break away from the accepted artistic traditions of the Academy towards a decisively modern mode of expression.
