Egon Schiele

Today Richard Nagy’s new gallery on Old Bond Street opened Egon Schiele: Women, an exhibition of more than 45 of the Austrian artist's works which runs until 30 June (title link). You don't often get the chance to see Schiele's art in London, because his depictions of the fair sex are considered rather rude. Here is Woman with Homunculus (1910) as an example. I can tell you one thing about Schiele: he didn't have a clue what a sensory homunculus should look like. His is just a "little man".
