    Whilst at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts (1907-09) Schiele was influenced by the Jugendstil movement, the German Art Nouveau movement. This drawing of 1907 is remarkable in its simplicity and candour. It dates from his first year at the Academy where he must have been absorbing the art theories of the time. It was during this formative period that he was to meet Gustav Klimt who was also to influence his thinking and style. In Portrait eines jungen Mädchen, Schiele's sharp observation and simplicty and clarity of vision render this an important example of his early portraiture.
