Portrait of Paris von GŁtersloh, 1918 (oil on canvas), Schiele, Egon (1890-1918) / Minneapolis Institute of Arts, MN, USA / The Bridgeman Art Library
Due to Schiele's death from an influenza epidemic in 1918, he never completed this painting of his friend Paris von GŁtersloh (1887-1973). Nonetheless, it remains a masterpiece of Austrian Expressionist portraiture. GŁtersloh was a painter, writer, actor, producer, and stage designer, who wrote the first study of Schiele's art in 1911. Schiele admired his friend's extraordinary intellectual and artistic talents and sought to portray him as a creative genius. With his hands elevated in a gesture of both attraction and repulsion, GŁtersloh is shown with his eyes transfixed and body tense at the moment of artistic inspiration.
