Egon Shiele (1890-1918) was an Austrian painter and protege of Gustav Klimt. At 15 his father died from syphilis and the young Shiele went to live with his uncle. He became uninterested in academic studies but showed a passion and talent for art.

In 1906 Shiele began to attend the 'Kunstgewerbeschule' but, on the recommendation from faculty members, was moved to the more traditional institution 'Akademie der Bildenden Kunste'.
In 1907 Schiele sought the mentorship of Gustav Klint; Klint took a shine to Schiele, arranging models and introducing him to perspective patrons.

In 1909 Egon Schiele exhibited the first of his work, with the help of Klimt. Around this time he left the Academy and was freed from the restrictions that it put on his work. He began to explore the idea human sexuality, many at the time found his work distasteful or disturbing.
