Here are a few images from a 2009 fashion shoot by Eric Nehr modeled directly after the works of Egon Schiele. For some reason, these snaps expose Schiele’s notorious vanity even further. But of course no one does self portraits like he did, with his writhing, angular paintings full of turn-of-the-century angst. A nice tribute. (via)
Hollywood, fashion, and art history collide in the photographs of Peter Linderbergh of Julianne Moore for a 2008 issue of Harpers Bazaar. Linderbergh photographs the talented actress side-by-side some of the most iconic and famous images of women pulled from art history. See Moore as an Egon Schiele, John Currin, Gustav Klimt, Richard Prince (pictured above), and more. All after the jump.
Am I crazy or are Steve Kim’s ghostly figurative paintings look like a mix between Egon Schiele, and Richard Diebenkorn’s paintings?
