Egon Schiele

I chose this piece by Schiele because I felt it had an interesting backstory. He was imprisoned for allegedly seducing an under aged girl, and while in jail he made this piece. Additionally, many of his drawing were confiscated for their seductive nature. Besides the backstory, I thought it was interesting as to why he chose to color certain parts of the drawing, but not others. I feel this produces an interesting point of interest in the drawing.
