From the dustjacket:
Schiele (1890-1918) has been described as 'one of the most brilliant draftsmen of all times....' The artist spent the whole of his life drawing, and one of the results of this passion are these sketchbooks. Among the 683 illustations in this volume are studies for some of this best-known paintings, as well as sketches of nudes, embracing couples, and portraits. Many of these pages are filled with the artist's notes and diaries which are here transcribed or explained in English.
