Harbor of Trieste by Egon Schiele

Wow!

This was my first reaction looking at this magnificent masterpiece by Egon Schiele. I was awestruck and kept staring at it for a couple of minutes. It is simply gorgeous. Just look at the lines!

This Austrian painter is mainly known for his Nude paintings/portraits. His nude paintings were considered so offensive that he was later arrested for obscenity.

Such as this semi nude called the Kneeling Semi Nude (1911):

But I fell in love with his Impressionism style. Take this beauty for example,
