Egon Schiele

Join us for a curator led tour of the exhibition Egon Schiele: The Radical Nude followed by light refreshments and the opportunity to find out more about new projects and opportunities within The Courtauld Gallery learning programme.

Egon Schiele (1890 - 1918) is one of the most important artists of the early 20th century and a central figure of Austrian Expressionism.  This exhibition brings together an outstanding group of the artist’s nudes to chart his ground-breaking approach during his short but urgent career.

Schiele’s technical virtuosity, highly original vision and unflinching depictions of the naked figure distinguish these works as being among his most significant contributions to the development of modern art.  This sharply focused exhibition will be a major opportunity to see more than thirty of these radical works assembled from international public and private collections.

Please note that this exhibition includes some drawings of an explicit nature.

Attending teachers will be given a free resource pack and light refreshments.

pinterest board

Launching this September! A competition for school and FE college students aged 16 to 19 years to click, connect, and construct a Pinterest board inspired by the gallery collection.

This 2 hour workshop is designed to support teachers in the use of digital resources for artistic research in the gallery and beyond, and specifically to deliver this competition in your school. You will work with an experienced Gallery educator to explore The Courtauld Gallery’s collection and find ways to embed critical thinking in your students’ approach to researching artworks both online and offline. Finally, the session will allow you time to consider how you will implement this project in your school with the help of peers across London.

For further information on the project, along with details of related gallery workshops and outreach workshops please visit our Click, Connect, Construct page and check out The Courtauld Education’s Pinterest!
