Egon Schiele: Young Genius in Vienna 1900
Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Art, 26 January-9 April
Young, troubled and talented: Egon Schiele was the doomed rockstar of fin-de-siecle Vienna. Like many of his generation he died tragically young—killed by Spanish flu at the age of 28, just three days after his pregnant wife. And he too left behind an extraordinarily intense body of work.
The exhibition—drawn from the collection of Vienna’s Leopold Museum—will include Schiele’s early mannered studies, produced as a teenager,
as well as his renowned self-portraits, here presented as explorations of a young artist’s identity. Attention will also be given to his haunting paintings of mothers with children, made as the artist was entering artistic maturity, as well as his knotty and erotic nudes and blocky landscape scenes.
This is the first major retrospective of Egon Schiele’s work to open in Japan in nearly 30 years. Alongside more than 50 of his drawings and paintings, it also includes over a hundred works by other artists in and around his adopted home city of Vienna, including Gustav Klimt, Richard Gerstl and Oskar Kokoschka, exploring how his intimate style was influenced by the broader artistic ideas circulating through the Austrian city.
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam, 10 February-4 June
