Edith & Egon Schiele

Egon loves trains, flowers, birds, colours and girls. He wants to draw everything he sees. Also Edith, the girl from across the street, with her waving skirts and soft blushes…
Egon Schiele (1890 1918) grew up as the son of a railwayman. He would be fascinated by trains for the rest of his life. And by people, who he drew a lot in an expressive style. In 1915 he married Edith Harms. Shortly after that he had to join the military. Egon got an office job, so he could keep seeing Edith. She got pregnant but at the end of October 1918 both died of the Spanish flue. Just when Egon was about to become a famous painter.
