This was a joint ‘Klimt – Schiele‘ exhibition at the MAGNIFICENT Boston Museum of Fine Arts which we visited on Tuesday.

While I was very familiar with Klimt, I had never heard of Egon Schiele. They were contemporaries and compatriots and Egon is said to Klimt’s protégé. I looked him up. Hhhmmm! Seems he was a bit of an unsavory character with an unhealthy interest in children! Kind of interesting that he would be featured alongside Klimt by a museum in Boston. Interesting. You should look jim up.

Interesting work. He sure could draw. Of that there is no doubt or debate.

He died the same year as Klimt, 1918. So it the centenary of their deaths. Egon, who died of the ‘Spanish Flu’ was 28, Klimt, who also died of the ‘flu’, was 55.
