by Egon Schiele (1890-1918)

Egon Schiele selfie Egon Schiele was an Austrian painter. A protégé of Gustav Klimt, Schiele was a major figurative painter of the early century. His work is noted for its intensity, and the many self-portraits the artist produced.

“He sensed… and saw a woman, tall, wearing a kerchief, with a long, yellow, wasted face and reddish, sunken eyes.” (pg. 169)  The context of this quote is that Raskolnikov has wandered onto a bridge to see a woman committing suicide. Yellow is used to describe her face to show her inner suffering and sadness that has brought her to end her own life.
