Vienna at the beginning of the 20th century: Young Egon Schiele, with his very original, erotically charged works, is one of the most controversial artists of his time. He lives passionately for his art, which is inspired by beautiful women and the spirit of an era that is coming to a end. His younger sister Gerti is his first muse but, much to her displeasure, more and more girls begin posing for him. When Egon’s fellow artist and friend Gustav Klimt introduces him to the redheaded Wally, it is not long before the two become connected by more than just their love for art.
A stormy but genuine relationship begins, the influence of which pervades all of Schiele’s future creations, finally becoming immortalized in his painting “Death and the Maiden”. (Official Website)
