Today is the birthday of Egon Schiele (1890-1918)

Egon Schiele. Portrait of Wally Neuzil. 1912, oil on panel, 32 cm x 39.8 cm. Leopold Museum. Vienna.

A scandalous artist and a relaxed and devoted lover who never became a wife but gave the most inspirational period in his work.

Probably the most famous muse of Egon Schiele was Walburga / Wally Neuzil.

Death and Life, 1915 .

Gustav Klimt’s large painting Death and Life, created in 1910, features not a personal death but rather merely an allegorical Grim Reaper who gazes at “life” with a malicious grin. This “life” is comprised of all generations: every age group is represented, from the baby to the grandmother, in this depiction of the never-ending circle of life. Death may be able to swipe individuals from life, but life itself, humanity as a whole, will always elude his grasp. The circle of life likewise repeats itself in the diverse, wonderful, pastel-coloured circular ornaments which adorn life like a garland. Gustav Klimt described this painting, which was honoured with a first prize at the 1911 International Art Exhibition in Rome, as his most important figurative work. Even so, he seems to suddenly no longer have been satisfied with this version in 1915, for he then began making changes to the painting—which had by that time long since been framed. The background, reportedly once gold-coloured, was made grey, and both death and life were given further ornaments. Standing before the original and examining the left interior edge of Josef Hoffmann’s frame for the painting, one can still discern traces of the subsequent over-painting, which was done by Klimt himself.

There is a picture of the first stage of the painting when Klimt made it in 1909/1910. It was reworked into what is posted. Here's the first stage.
