Self-Portrait with Black Clay Vase and Spread Fingers - Egon Schiele
oil on wood, 1911
Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early 20th century. His work is noted for its intensity, and the many self-portraits the artist produced. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele’s paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism. (wikipedia)

I don’t know if someone has already submitted this, but this sexy sexy man has had a piece of my heart since 12th grade.
He was said to be “mad, bad, and dangerous to know”. Just how I like my men.
