Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism.
This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career.
Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.
This sharply focused exhibition will be a major opportunity to see more than thirty of these radical works assembled from international public and private collections.
Please note that this exhibition includes some drawings of an explicit nature.
DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND THE COURTAULD GALLERY WILL BE EXTENDING ITS OPENING HOURS FOR THE LAST WEEK OF THE EXHIBITION EGON SCHIELE: THE RADICAL NUDE.
The Gallery will be open until 20.00 (last admission 19.30) from 12 January to 18 January 2015 with the exception of Thursday 15 January.
Please note there is a Special Museum Late event on Thursday 15 January which is sold out. No tickets for gallery admission or entrance to the event will be available on the night.
