On November 2, 2018, Paul Grant will host a screening of the 2016 Austrian film Egon Schiele: Death and the Maiden (Egon Schiele – Tod und Mädchen), directed by Dieter Berner, 110 min.
Egon Schiele (1890 – 1918) was an important early 20th century Viennese artist and was mentored by Gustav Klimt. His early works resembled those of Klimt, but he soon developed his own style. His explicit exploration of sexuality was disturbing to some. In 1911, Schiele met Wally Neuzil, 17, in Vienna. They lived together, and she was a model for many of his paintings, including Death and the Maiden. (For mature audiences)
