He quickly broke away from the German movement of new art (Jugendstil) and began to paint in his typical style, with agonizing existential passion for the human body. He painted openly with reference to human sexuality (the images fit into the era when Freud was formulating his theories). Schiele’s paintings are dark, aggressive, and unusual.

His fame grew during his life, although it was very short: after World War I, his wife and child died to typhoid fever and Schiele died after a short time himself.
