Egon Schiele

Schilele dose a large amount of work based on the study of people (some rather rude). But what I find interesting about his work is the way he composes his pictures.
In quite a few of his pieces Schiele crops of the top of the hair and/or the legs.

This close cropping makes for an interesting composition and helps the image to sit comfortably on the page.
