by Egon Schiele
Seated Girl (Poldi Lodzinsky])1910
The model Poldi Lodzinsky, the daughter of a bus driver of Krumau, the birthplace of the painter’s mother, poses sitting with her hands on her lap. Her position and the anxious facial expression recall Puberty by Edvard Munch, an artist Schiele deeply admired. The painting is notable for the delicate handling of the patterned fabric of the dress; indeed, the print is characteristic of the Jugendstil, a fact which links Schiele to the work of his master Gustav Klimt.
