Egon Schiele

The Radical Nude

Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career.


This exhibition is the first ever museum show in the UK devoted entirely to the artist.


It explores one of Schiele’s most vital and original subjects – his extraordinary drawings and watercolours of male and female nudes.
