Late Night Tribute to Egon Schiele

"All beautiful and noble qualities have been united in me... I shall be the fruit which will leave eternal vitality behind even after its decay. How great must be your joy, therefore, to have given birth to me."

"Art cannot be modern. Art is primordially eternal."

"At present, I am mainly observing the physical motion of mountains, water, trees and flowers. One is everywhere reminded of similar movements in the human body, of similar impulses of joy and suffering in plants."

"Everything is dead while it lives."

"I am so rich that I must give myself away."

"To restrict the artist is a crime. It is to murder germinating life."

~Egon Schiele
