Art and color by Nicolas Sure.
From the publisher:
The art of scandal.
1912, Vienna. Fiery Egon Schiele is the talk of the Austrian capital. Fascinated by forbidden pleasures, this young painter is famous for drawing very young girls in lascivious and suggestive positions, attracting the wrath of the benevolent bourgeoisie. Falsely accused of raping one of his latest models, a minor, Schiele is now in prison awaiting trial. For his defense, his two best friends and his lawyer appeal to the era's great figures, then gathered in Vienna: Stefan Zweig, Sigmund Freud, Gustav Klimt ... all, captivated by the Schiele's genius and by a love of art, will combine their talents and their influence.
A sulphurous painter with a taste for scandal, dead at the age of 28, Egon Schiele was a shooting star in the history of art. Yet his short life yet left its mark on 20th century art. Recounting the episode of Schiele's imprisonment in 1912, Dimitri Joannidès and Nicolas Sure show us the excessive personality of this prodigy, immersing us in the effervescent artistic scene that thrived in Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century.
