SchielePosted: Thu, 4/2/09
today was a very special day for me .
its been almost 13 years since i first head of Egon Schiele .
Today was the first time I was able to see some of his work in real life .
Better yet this is how my day went today .
We packed up the car and headed to Neulengbach .
The town Egon Schiele live in for a few years back around 1915.
We headed over to the Egon Schiele Museum only to find that where the paintings area closed
Better yet though , This museum is actually the old jail which housed Egon for crimes of immorality and pornographic material
Rolling into the building we found NO ONE THERE .
literally we were the only people in the whole place
We walked down a few steps and I walked into Egon Schiele paintings .
I stood locked in Egon Schieles jail cell
after the jail cell we headed to Tulln , Egon Schieles Birth town
were we saw tons of his original early works ,
today was crazy ...
and tomorrow is going to be even crazier , I'm in Wein ( VIenna )
and tomorrow is museum day for me .. Schiele / Klimt / Picasso masterpiece day
