• 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.
