Exhibition visit: Egon Schiele: The Radical nude

I have recently been to visit Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude at the Courtauld Gallery in London. This was a long awaited exhibition for me, as I have been a fan for many years.

The show certainly did not disappoint.  I am in awe of Schiele's use of line, simple yet wild, confident yet free.  It was this stripped down continuous journey across the body that puts Schiele's expression vastly above any other.

I produced some quick thoughts, on my IPhone, just quick views on what I saw as the main points to this use of line and to colour; this colour is important as well, but the line is key.
