"We are alone in the dark. You up there have lips, rolled-up leaves, hands entwined with rosy blood and bluish veins, we are alone and cannot touch. We live our life fully, our fate is to resist the waves, that is what we become, and triumph and pain color us as the reflection of fall and of the sun colors the waves there near the surface."


- Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1899), as translated by Johannes Beilharz



Egon Schiele died in 1918 at the age of 28 but his work is more famous than ever before.

Egon Schiele on the Vltava - Český Krumlov, Czech Republic.


Not usually an empty and quiet town but rain has kept most everyone indoors for a little while, so I thought it was a better time to take photos. The Egon Schiele art gallery is on the left, with some interesting murals and artwork in it.

The painter Egon Schiele and his model Wally lived for several years in the small town of Český Krumlov (Krumau) in southern Bohemia, which was the birthplace of Schiele's mother. Despite Schiele's family connections in Krumau, he and his lover were driven out of the town by the residents, who strongly disapproved their lifestyle, including his alleged employment of the town's teenage girls as models. In addition to portraits, Schiele also created some views of Krumau.
