49th Exhibition of the Vienna Secession (Secession 49. Ausstellung) (1918). Egon Schiele (Austrian, 1890-1918). Lithographed poster. MoMA.
This poster for the last Secessionist exhibition in which Schiele participated is based on a slightly earlier painting. Suggesting a Christ-like centrality not out of keeping with his personality, Schiele represents himself at the head of a table of friends reading, a number of whom have the tonsures of monks. Beyond its collegiate message, the print impresses as a formal arrangement of stark reductivity.
