Crouching Woman

In this harrowing image, a thin woman with wounds to her body and hairs standing on end, appears imprisoned.

Schiele created psychologically disturbing and erotic images of the body. In 1912 he was imprisoned for disseminating indecent drawings but by the time of this print his reputation was well established and his work was exhibited across Europe.

Purchased 1998 (No. 98.4)
