Egon Schiele's creative period falls into the era of Viennese Art Nouveau. At the same time, his work is characterized by the worldview and aesthetics of Expressionism. As in the works of the forerunners and representatives of this style, above all Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch, his pictures are also projections of his moving feelings. As with his spiritual relatives, his feelings of spontaneous and dynamic brushwork, coarse forms, and exaggerated, that is, expressive colors, find immediate and heightened expression.

Despite the artistic currents and movements he did not escape from, Schiele quickly found his personal style. His pictures always reflect the death and dreariness with which he and his contemporaries were also confronted by the First World War. The aesthetics of Schiele did not remain unaffected. In a powerful and dynamic manner of painting, with sweeping lines and somber-dirty colors, his emotional experience found a gloomy artistic expression. The picture of "Two women hugging each other" in 1915, in the middle of the war, testifies to this.

The work, created on paper in pencil, watercolor and gouache, gives the impression of being unfinished and spontaneous. The increase in expressiveness results, among other things, from the movement of the women, who act against a light background. Her embrace is downright stormy. Add to that the mannered postures. One of the two women is naked except for her knee socks. It lies between the legs of the others clasping her. Her upper body turns from her lover to the viewer, whom she looks at with a gloomy look.

The second woman has the first firmly under control. She clasps her lover with her hands and feet. Behind this, besides the desire, there may be the fear of letting go of the lover. She is also dressed in stockings. She also wraps a red cloth. It is an ambiguous motive. The fabric is reminiscent of flaming fire - which on the one hand symbolizes their "burning" passion, on the other hand refers beyond the picture to reality, where the war literally "burns" life and love. © Meisterdrucke
