Exhibition: Egon Schiele

For the first time, the Fondation Louis Vuitton is devoting a monographic exhibition to a major artist: the Austrian painter and poet Egon Schiele (1890-1918). From October 3rd, 2018 to January 14th, 2019, the public will be able to admire 120 artist’s works (drawings, gouaches, paintings) in a scenography divided into four parts. Each section represents a facet of Egon Schiele's art: the ornamental line, the expressive line, the combined line and the amputee and fragmented line. Tragically disappeared in 1918, swept away by the Spanish flu, the master of expressionism nevertheless left behind him an important collection: almost 300 paintings and several thousand drawings. His works are recognisable among all thanks to the themes they evoke: the expression of desire, introspection or even, the distortion of bodies. A must-see retrospective from the start of the school year can be discovered a few metro stations away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.

Exhibition “Egon Schiele”, from October 3rd, 2018 to January 14th, 2019.
