Sunflower II, 1909 Wien museum, Vienna
Vincent Van Gogh has always been well
known for his sunflower paintings,
examples of wich were exhibeted
at the Vienna Secession in 1903 and
again at the GalerieMiethkein1906. Many
Viennese artists, including not just
Schiele but also Klimt, were inspired by
Van Gogh to paint sunflowers.

Nude Girl with folded arms ( Gertrude Schiele ). 1910 Albertina Vienna
Like Minne's nude boy. Schiele's sister clasps her arms tightly across her chest,
modestly protecting her naked torso even as she exposes her genitalia to public scrutiny.
For both artist's, as for Kokoschka, the adolescent body was a perfect vessel for sexual ambivalence.

Man with a blue headband and hand on cheek ( self portrait ) 1909, Albertina. Vienna
Although a residue of jugendstil stylization remains in the decorative headband and the
patterns on the artist's Tshirt, Expressionist elements emerge in the contorted face and hand.
The switch from colored pencil to water colour in early 1910 would allowSchiele to
capitalize on these Expressionistic tendencies.
