egon schiele

Egon is one of my favorites and always will be. Anyone who runs away from sleezy bourgeois Vienna to a little town in Bohemia with the underage girl he loves to make grotesque and erotic art about sex and death is bound for great things.
Like the Spanish flu, which got the best of him at the tender age of 28.

edit: bahahaha what a creep! "Vice is nice, but incest is best," as an acid casualty art history teacher of mine once expounded.
