“I want to explore this avenue of mixing fashion and

3. EGON SCHIELE. Born in 1890, Schiele was part of an
Austrian generation for whom the subjective was all. The

elevate advertising to the status of a fine art. This is an
extraordinary shift in the history of art, obliterating the

an illustrated journal and did dozens of drawings.
Pain and Passion, this is Frida Khalo.
