Erwin Mitsch's authoritative study of Egon Schiele's paintings and drawings includes a careful and representative selection of his nudes, portraits, allegories and landscapes, in order to provide a thorough overview and penetrative insight into the artist's character and life as well as his works themselves. The Austrian painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918) was a crucial and widely recognized figure in the birth of modern art. His uncompromising style of expression gave form to the anxieties and insecurities that beset Western culture at the turn of the nineteenth century, stigmatizing modern art to this day.

Erwin Mitsch was for many years on the staff of the Albertina, Vienna.Review:
''The best book on the Viennese wunderkind so far and maybe forever.'' --John Canaday in The New York Times Book Review
''...Alessandra Comini's Egon Schiele's Portraits remains unsurpassed as a reliable, readable and insightful introduction to the erotically tortured, yet refined art of this Viennese Expressionist artist. Comini introduced Schiele to the world outside Austria and Germany with her exemplary scholarly studies which were replete with extensive documentation, historic photographs, and major discoveries. The author masterfully situates Schiele in the context of the Vienna of the aged Emperor Franz Joseph, of Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and Arnold Schoenberg. With a skill few other art historians can match, she weaves a compelling narrative around the persona and psyche of the artist, his Viennese milieu, and his intensely personal, psychologically compelling imagery. A remarkable new introduction to this new edition now also offers an intriguing, frequently witty account of post-Schiele happenings. Today this book continues to serve as a knowledgeable and trusted guide for all of us who know or who are discovering the irresistible, angst-ridden company of Egon Schiele's passionate art and his all too brief life.'' --Reinhold Heller, Professor of Art History and of Germanic Studies emeritus, The University of Chicago
''Alessandra Comini brings a keen eye and passionate spirit of engagement to the art of Egon Schiele. Her original research, scholarly insights, with an up-to-date lively introduction, illuminate the work and life of this quintessential Austrian artist.'' --Renee Price, Director, Neue Galerie New York, Museum for German and Austrian Art
