The Best Schiele of all?


So, which painting is the best of all? Is it his self-portraits of anguished disfigurement? Is it his bleak landscapes with arthritic branches? Or is it the tortured and faceless female nude that haunts those solitary paintings? Post your suggestions, please! My own favourite: it won't surprise you to hear that it is not the Sunflowers recently sold at Christies but rather the brittle love of Friendship above.

My favorite Schiele painting is "Scornful Woman", done in 1910.

An interesting take on this painting was done by Elena Ilku.
See: http://www.elenailku.4t.com/photo3_4.html .

As Ilku's version was made prior to 2009 (ie. within the 99 year copyright period), and it's being sold as a $450 print on www.artfulhome.com , I wonder who should be collecting royalties?
