The Leopold Museum shines light on the woman featured in the melancholic painting Portait of Wally, one of the best-known works by Austrian painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918).
"Wally" was the nickname of Walburga Neuzil who became a model for Schiele in early 1911, and later his muse, lover and devoted companion until 1915.
The exhibition documents her life, her influence on Schiele's career, and her role as a model in some of the artist's most famous paintings.
On display are photographs, documents and artworks, including the painting Death and Maiden and of course Portrait of Wally.
Wed-Mon 10.00-18.00. Thurs 10.00-21.00
