I have a silk scarf with this image that my mother bequeathed to me among her clothes and things.
I should sleep soon, tomorrow is an early day. I want to make something clear, though. This place, my sanctified situation, means very little to me at all, if anything, if I cannot share it.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful girl,
It’s morning time—early—and the plants are yawning, saying: Is she back…Is she back yet.
And men said that the blood of the stars flowed in her veins.
Sitzender männlicher Akt. Egon Schiele, 1910
This was the first painting I saw when I entered the gallery showing the Leopold Collection of his works at the MoMA in 1997. I had never seen anything so stunning.
