Portrait of the Painter Paris von Gutersloh
This oil painting done on a canvas was made by Egon Schiele.  It was never completed due to his death in 1918 but still a great piece of expressionist art.  Schiele was portraying his friend as a creative mastermind.  I picked this painting because something was drawing me to it.  It is a really unique way to portray one of your friends.  It is a little creepy, yet not at the same time.  I just think its a great piece of art overall.                                                                                                      -Jamie
