Coinciding with the Royal Academy of Art’s exhibition, ‘Klimt/Schiele: Drawings from the Albertina Museum, Vienna’, marking the centenary of both artists’ deaths, art historian Richard Stemp compares the drawn work of Secessionist painter Gustav Klimt and his young protégé Egon Schiele. Both artists exploited the immediacy of the drawn medium to explore new ideas of modernity, subjectivity and the erotic – in Schiele’s case leading to a threeday prison sentence for a charge of incitement to debauchery. Their raw and emotive works on paper offer insights into their artistic relationship and differing creative processes.
