Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt

Here’s a really interesting piece on the relationship between Schiele and Klimt.

I attended two separate online life drawing sessions, both hosted by Art Makes Sense. The first one had poses and costumes inspired by Schiele, the second one by Klimt. Here are some pieces from those sessions.

If you ask most people, “Klimt or Schiele, who do you prefer?”, you hear strong opinions on both sides. When I look at my sketches from the two sessions, I can see it’s clear I have a strong bias towards one of them.

  1. Very powerful art, and I think I know whose style you prefer. I love the art of both masters for different reasons.

  3. Both artists created very compelling, and controversial, work We don’t really get Schiele without Klimt, so perhaps we should give the elder some brownie points. I do love the drawings which you’ve done which are clearly more influenced by the one. Your open and closed contour really speaks to his self portraits.

  5. All the sketches look great. But I think I like the fluidity of movement more in the Schiele.
