It features his notorious work Self-Portrait with Peacock Vest, Standing (1911). Egon Schiele’s work Self-Portrait with Peacock Vest, Standing (1911) is one of the most unusual works in his career.Unlike most of his self-portraits, Schiele does not represent himself naked in a state of misery, despair, and grievance. Rather, we observe Schiele in an almost arrogant, proud, smug stance. A white aureole surrounds Schiele’s head, resembling images of saints or Byzantine fresco representations of Christ. Like other members of the German Expressionist movement (i.e. Gustav Klimt), Schiele was influenced by Nietzschean philosophy. In his belief that art and the artist can bring salvation to humanity. It is the first time we see in Schiele’s oeuvre, the V-Shaped gesture of his hand, in front of the solar plexus of his chest.
