Richard Gerstl (1883--1908) painted for just four years, but the work he produced in that short period is widely seen as well ahead of his time, including Self Portrait Against a Blue Background and The Fey Sisters. Although Gerstl never exhibited during his lifetime and his innovative work was largely ignored by both the academy and the art world, his portraits and landscapes are today regarded as some of the most important representatives of Austrian Expressionism. With Richard Gerstl, Diethard Leopold takes readers skillfully through the artist's life and work. Gerstl trained at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, but his rejection of the Vienna Secession made it difficult for him to find acceptance there, and he ultimately continued painting without formal guidance. While he felt marginalized by the art world, Gerstl forged a meaningful friendship with the musician Arnold Schönberg. Later, his affair with Schönberg's wife would lead to the loss of both his lover and his friend, causing him to tragically take his life at the age of twenty-five. Working with in cooperation with the Leopold Museum in Vienna, Leopold has written a detailed, accessible portrait of Gerstl, illustrated with selected works, that will enhance our understanding of this important artist

"The Viennese artist Richard Gerstl is still regarded as being an insider tip. And yet he was one of the most important artists in Vienna in around 1900, alongside Klimt, Schiele and Kokoschka. Although he was only 25 years old when he died, he created an exciting and unusual oeuvre. This volume accompanying the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany introduces all the aspects of this exceptional artist. The artistic career of Richard Gerstl (1883-1908) extended over only approximately five years. During his lifetime he refused to allow his work to be exhibited in any way. As a result of his dramatic early death by his own hand many of his works were destroyed and almost no personal belongings have survived. The present work on his entire oeuvre finally fills the gap this has left. In his subjects portraits, landscapes and nude paintings, including the first nude self-portrait by an artist since Dürer, Gerstl succeeded in freeing his style from that of Salon painting. He applied the paint in an increasingly pastose and free manner and created pictures which are regarded as some of the most modern works of his time."--Provided by publisher

Work of a few specialists. Schonberg's paintings have traditionally been viewed only as a sidelight to his musical creativity. And Alfred Kubin's fantastical drawings need to be understood in their position between symbolist and expressionist art. By treating these five figures within their intellectual and cultural setting, the author is able to document the way in which early Austrian Expressionism developed from, and reacted against, the art of the Viennese Secession
