In what is probably his best-known self-portrait, the 22-year-old Egon Schiele captivates us in a way that is at once self-confident and fragile.Nothing in this balanced composition is left to chance; every line finds its continuation or a counterpart to which it corresponds:hair and body are both cropped by the edges of the painting as if reflecting, one shoulder is pulled up with the other lowered, and the slender branches bear intensely coloured red lampion fruit (which actually resemble more Chinese lantern flowers).
