This is based on asketch I made after visiting the Museum Leopold in Vienna this summer. It probably needs some explaining. They have big collections of paintings by Egon Schiele. The weird thing about Egon Schiele ist that much of it is almost pornographic, but somehow it still works. but what amused me were the panels stating that the women on these pictures look self- confident at the observer. Apart from the fact that to me they just look blank, I guess 19th century Vienna would have been a paradise for the likes of Harvey Weinstein and I really have problems with the whole romanticizing of Sissi and Co. If you had money it was probably great, if not…But Egon´s landscapes are great.
I tried some new techniques on this….
I made this after the send them home incident. My depiction of Native Americans is admittedly clichéd but I hope you still get my point. We have more enough populist politicians of our own in Germany already.
Some studies fr an new children´s book…..
