Egon did hundreds of drawings and paintings depicting contorted nude bodies (this one is tame). They are described as grotesque, pornographic, and disturbing. I agree, and find these “erotic” pictures, although honest, quite unsettling. Here comes my amateur psychology part. Traumatized by his father’s “death by STD” Egon acts it out in both his life and his art. He gets into trouble with many young models, is run out of town, and is arrested for pornography and seduction of a minor. Serious stuff for a guy that remains Austria’s second most loved artist.
