Egon Schiele werd geboren in Tulln op 12 juni 1890 en stierf in Wenen op 31 oktober 1918. Hij was een Oostenrijks expressionistisch kunstschilder. Zowel zijn grootvader als zijn vader werkten bij de spoorwegen. Een loopbaan bij de spoorwegen had voor de hand gelegen, maar Schiele ging tegen de oorspronkelijke wens van zijn moeder en zijn voogd naar de kunstacademie, waar hij overigens matige resultaten behaalde. De werken van Egon Schiele zijn expressionistisch en behoren tot de schilderstijl Sezession. De tekeningen en schilderijen van Schiele zijn voornamelijk afbeeldingen van mensen. In beperkte mate heeft Schiele stadsgezichten en landschappen geschilderd. Door het sterke gebruik van lijnen kan Schiele eerder als een tekenaar dan als een schilder gezien worden. Kleur in de schilderijen wordt pas achteraf aangebracht, als de tekening af is. Het kleurgebruik versterkt echter wel de vervreemdende werking in hoge mate. De schilderijen van Schiele doen denken aan die van Kokoschka maar hebben ook een kubistisch karakter.

A singular fatality has ruled the destiny of nearly all the most famous of Leonardo da Vinci's works. Two of the three most important were never completed, obstacles having arisen during his life-time, which obliged him to leave them unfinished; namely the Sforza Monument and the Wall-painting of the Battle of Anghiari, while the third—the picture of the Last Supper at Milan—has suffered irremediable injury from decay and the repeated restorations to which it was recklessly subjected during the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. Nevertheless, no other picture of the Renaissance has become so wellknown and popular through copies of every description.
