Egon Schiele was born in 1890 in Trun an der Donau, near Vienna, the capital of Austria. An art teacher discovered his precocious talent when he received his primary education in the city of Klosterneuburg.
While influenced by the Vienna Secession, which were popular at the time, he pursued his own paintings. After leaving for the First World War, in 1918 he gained a great deal of attention at the 49th Vienna Secession exhibition, but died of a Spanish cold in October of the same year.
Schiele, who burned her 28-year-old short life into art, was highly praised for her work of drawing a human who shares both body and soul with a strong personality. A number of works that have an intuitive impact on the viewer opened the "new art in pursuit of the ego."
