Time Out says

Viennese painter Egon Schiele was just 28 years old when he died, but while his career was short-lived, he is remembered as one of the greatest artists of the late 19th century. It’s been about 30 years since Tokyo has seen an exhibition dedicated solely to the artist, so this comprehensive showcase hosted by the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum is a truly momentous event. 

Here, you can encounter Schiele’s rare genius through 50 works borrowed from the Leopold Museum in Vienna. Through works like Schiele's 'Self-Portrait with Chinese Lantern Plant' and a 1915 portrait of his wife Edith, the exhibition provides rich insight into the young artist's life and his powerful legacy. Alongside Schiele's 50 artworks, there will be an additional 120 installations from Schiele's contemporaries including Klimt, Kokoschka and Gerstl.
