Great Art-Bad Philosophy Week: Egon Schiele's "Standing Male Nude with Red Loincloth"

This week I'm going to showcase great works of art which reflect some sort of terrible philosophical stance. Many of these works I enjoy and respect from an artistic standpoint though I don't share the artist's philosophy.

Egon Schiele was a brilliant artist who died at 28. From my understanding of his life and views, I would guess that he was an incredibly whiney and immature individual, despite his artistic brilliance.
