"Study of a couple"
Egon Schiele 1912

This really intense oil on canvas paint was made in 1912 by my favorite painter ever, Egon Schiele. . The title "Study of a couple" should tell you everything what he wanted to capture - the couple´s intimacy. 
He was closely in touch with modern developments in psychoanalysis and the deep, conflicted problems in the people he met and drew. 
Schiele´s paintings always reflects his exploration into the human emotions, the complexities and divisions of human personalities, the distance sometimes, and then the closeness, of human relations and possibility of compassion.

For me the best possible ever way to start my "Sunday inspiration" collection.
