Scott Reyburn pairs his report on the Kostalitz collection for sale in London at Sotheby’s this February with news of a new show of Egon Schiele drawings, the first in 20 years in no-sex-please-we’re-British London:
Sotheby’s sale will coincide with the opening of an exhibition of 45 drawings by Egon Schiele to be held by the London-based dealer Richard Nagy.
“Women” will inaugurate Nagy’s new gallery at 22 Old Bond Street on Feb. 7. […] “The English have never been comfortable about Schiele,” Nagy said in an interview. “His art is about sex and it’s about angst.” About 20 percent of the drawings, sourced from various private collections, will be available for sale. Prices range from 100,000 pounds to 5 million pounds.
