About The Poster: This poster advertises the Albertina Museum's (Vienna) collection of Graphic art. The museum owns a large collection of graphic works by Egon Schiele. His drawing "crouching woman" from 1918 was used for the poster design.
A tormented soul, his work remains provocative and often shocking. Defiling the classical nude through expressive and unconventional renderings of models, he also defied academic conventions despite his obvious talent in rendering classical pictures. A pioneer of the Expressionist movement, Schiele had a short-lived career filled with tremendous turbulence and accomplishment. Schiele reached the peak of his career just before WWI, participating in notable group exhibitions and having his first solo show in Paris in 1914. Four years later in 1918 he succumbed to the Spanish Flu, three days after his pregnant wife was taken by the same disease. He was 28 years old.
