Death and the Maiden by Egon Schiele - Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting on Canvas


Many of Egon Schiele’s paintings, especially the ones before his conscription for the First World War, invoke a depressed and moody atmosphere. Like his many other paintings during this period in his career, Death and the Maiden shows Schiele’s obsession with death and dying. In this painting, the artist portrays himself as death, a skeleton-like version of himself embracing a woman. There is a sense of surrender in this painting, like someone has accepted an impending death, seeking comfort in what awaits. This is one of the striking works of a one of a kind genius.
