Foreword by Christoph Becker. Text by Oskar Bätschmann, Martin Harrison, Diethard Leopold, Helena Pereña Sáez, Franz Smola, Oliver Wick.
The core oeuvre of Austrian painter Egon Schiele (1890–1918) was produced within barely a decade, at the beginning of the twentieth century. His famous nudes probed the existential core of human experience. The paintings of British artist Jenny Saville (born 1970) are equally intense, with their physicality and confrontational stance. This catalogue brings the work of these two artists together for the first time. The stylistic and thematic proximity of the "body-landscapes" and portraits by these two young painters is revealed, despite the decades separating their work and their varying use of the brush. The paintings and drawings of both artists lend the human body an insistent corporeality, rendered in every detail. In Schiele's self-portraits, usually small-format works, the pose, the accentuated view from below and his gestural style give the images a visual impact equal to the forceful punch of Saville's giant-format paintings.

Essays by Edwin Becker and Jane Kallir. Introduction by Klaus Albrecht Schr‡der.
Although Egon Schiele died of the Spanish flu in 1918 at the age of 28, he left behind a substantial and controversial oeuvre that will forever mark him as one of Austria's most talented Expressionists. Influenced at first by Gustav Klimt, Schiele soon developed a style of his own, abandoning decorative ornamentation in favor of a highly expressive style. His work, which relates to fundamental aspects of human life--eroticism, sexuality and death--created a scandal in early twentieth-century Vienna, and the artist was denounced by critics and government authorities. In addition to his starkly realistic nudes, he also executed profoundly sensitive portraits in which he explored the inner essence of his subjects. In this volume Jane Kallir--author of numerous books on Egon Schiele including the catalogue raisonne of his entire oeuvre--offers a fascinating survey of the artist's life and work. The majority of the works presented here--paintings, colored drawings and photographs--are from the comprehensive Schiele collection of the Albertina Museum in Vienna.
