TEA Tenerife Space of Arts is screening from Friday 21 to Sunday 23, at 19:00 and 21:30 hours the film “Egon Schiele” (“Egon Schiele: Tod und Mädchen”, 2016), directed by Dieter Berner that offers an intimate and artistic portrait of the Austrian painter. It will be available in the original German version with Spanish subtitles. The general ticket is on sale at the price of 4 €. Friends of TEA, 3 €.

The film is about Egon Schiele (Tull, Austria, 1890), one of the most provocative artists of early 20th century Vienna. This young bourgeois managed to scandalise the society of the time with his radical paintings, original works loaded with eroticism, while he obtained the necessary support to continue working thanks to his good education and charisma, as well as the favour of several artists of the moment, among whom was Gustav Klimt, who decided to sponsor him. He lived passionately for his art, inspired by beautiful women and the spirit of an era. Her younger sister Gerti was her first muse, but soon and to her displeasure, more and more girls posed for Egon. When his friend Gustav Klimt introduced him to redhead Wally, the two young men soon merged into something much stronger than a love of art. Thus, a stormy and true relationship began, which went beyond Schiele's work and has become immortal through his painting Death and the Maiden.
