At the beginning of the 20th century, Egon Schiele was one of the most provocative artists in Vienna. His life and work were driven by beautiful women, and two women had a lasting impact on him — his sister and first muse, Gerti, and 17-year-old Wally, arguably Schiele's one true love, immortalized in his famous painting “Death and the Maiden.”

The film screens in German with English subtitles. Visit SteamboatLibrary.org/events for more information.
