Portrait of Karl Sakovsek 1910 by Egon Shiele

Today the remarkable Neue Gallery show of 125 drawings by Egon Shiele on 5th Avenue at 86th Street.  As I wheeled myself around, the art project I plan to undertake in the new year came into focus.  I want to draw/paint a Shiele a day for a period of time and write about what it is like for a lesbian feminist to artistically engage with this gifted artist/pedophile.
