Event description

Description

While the Cubists and Fauvists pushed the visual language of art to extremes in Paris, and Russian artists were tilting towards political revolution, avant-garde art in pre-WWI Vienna unfolded in a very different direction. More than any other artist, Egon Schiele used his art to explore the depths of his own psychology, scrutinising his desires and anxieties with the utmost directness and intensity. But, given that Sigmund Freud and others were also exploring these realms in Vienna, was Schiele exploring his own mind or was he simply a sign of the times?

In time for the upcoming Royal Academy exhibition Klimt / Schiele, art historian Andrew Spira explores the raw angst and stark sensuality of bad boy Egon Schiele.

Evening event with cash bar.
