Portrait Of Wally

I had never heard of Expressionist painter Egon Schiele until I heard Rachel's album "Music For Egon Schiele".

 I love their music. It's very cinematic.

Anyway, Portrait Of Wally is a gripping, quickly-paced documentary about the legal issues surrounding the ownership of Egon Schiele's painting which was seized by Nazis during World War II. Very well-constructed and edited, it features many wonderful images of Schiele's vibrant, disturbing artwork.
