The painting features a woman squatting on her legs with what you might even call a seductive look to her face. In fact the original drawing had also been adapted to be used for a statue of the same woman, which would have given a whole new dominion to the figure in the picture.
The artist Schiele only had a short life but in his early work he favoured a more Eastern/Asian form of art, which can be seen in his works. In fact almost all of Egon Schiele's work featured the use of twisted body shapes with varying forms of facial expression, which marked him as an exponent of expressionism.
Infant it could be said that Schiele delighted in exploring both the human form and human sexuality with in his works.
Like many artists Schiele didn't just stay with painting people he also undertook landscapes, although the landscapes didn't really feature Schiele's unique and daring style.
The painting Kneeling Female in Orange Dress is one of Schiele's more classic works, as some of his more daring work was viewed as being grotesque, pornographic and even disturbing.
With some work featuring elements of death and discovery which have both been decried as forms of artistic exploration. At the time Egon Schile's fascination with bodily distortions, explicit eroticism and anguish made him unpopular with the peoples of that period, which is ironic as its these same explicit features that have made his work so mesmerising and sought after today and only goes to illustrate that an artist is never truly appreciated in their own time.
