Donna seduta con la gamba piegata

Sitting woman with legs drawn up

Egon Schiele creates this work in 1917. The only subject of the painting is Valerie Neuzil, nicknamed Wally, formerly Schiele's muse in many of his masterpieces.Through the representation of this sitting woman, half-naked, curved and incomplete, the contrasting relationship the author has with sex is clearly evident. The red hair, the fixed and bewitching eyes of the woman, her provocative and sensual appearance, give the work a highly erotic meaning.

Egon Schiele creates this work in 1917. It is now kept at the Prague National Gallery. The only subject of the painting is Valerie Neuzil, nicknamed Wally, formerly Schiele's muse in many of his masterpieces. We can consider it a clear metaphor of the morbid and complicated bond between Schiele and Wally, who is the painter's lover for five long years: their relationship is characterized by betrayals, prejudices and transgressions. Through the representation of this sitting woman, half-naked, curved and incomplete, the contrasting relationship the author has with sex is clearly evident. The red hair, the fixed and bewitching eyes of the woman, her provocative and sensual appearance, give the work a highly erotic meaning. Typical feature of Egon Schiele's style is the use of a dry and simple, but incisive stroke. In life he is a person with violent impulses, little thoughtful and very egocentric, sometimes almost ill in his way of loving. Wally's transgressive representation is a clear message to the bourgeoisie that Schiele hated so much. It is the silent provocation to the rejection that people have towards his thoughts, and a clear consolation to his solitude and emancipation.
