About the Event

Egon Schiele came of age during a period of contrast between bourgeois norms and the realities of contemporary sexual experience. Schiele is principally known for his unconventional, often unsettling depictions of the female nude. His connection to and depictions of a cadre of gay and bisexual men (Max Oppenheimer, Willy Lidl, and Erwin Osen), however, spark compelling questions surrounding his unique interpretations of human sexuality.
