Egon and Gustav

As many of you know I was trompin around New York Last week. I like to get there at least once a year to be “cleansed” as Sean would say. I made all the stops.

Anyways, I have to say this was my favorite part of my trip. Learning about Klimt and the other artists of Austria and Germany in the late eighteen-early nineteen hundreds. I hope we’ll spend some time in the art analysis class talking about these artists but one fact I learned that was cool:

And they were great friends and had a lot of respect for eachother. I think Egon Scheile was probably the first punk rocker. He was punk before punk existed. Sid Vicious has nothin on him.
