      Esperaba más de este libro. Los textos son, muchas veces, artículos académicos con interpretaciones audaces, pero que nada explican. A pesar de su extensión, dedica muy pocas páginas a la reproducción de obras. Muchas de ellas son difíciles de ver, pero en conjunto deja una sensación de tibieza.

      A fantastic inside look into one of the greatest artists and draftsman of all time. Dr. Comini not only disects Schiele herself, but provides first hand accounts provided by those he knew and loved. The information in the book is a must read and invaluable to anyone who is a fan of Schiele
