Songs About People # 263 Egon Schiele

Patti Smith was famously drawn to Tom Verlaine in the early days of punk because she wanted his 'Egon Schiele look'. Schiele himself is very much a Rock and Roll painter. The song here that pays him tribute is a nice, evocative piece by a Melbourne artist called Martin Martini from an album from 2013 called Vienna 1913. The whole thing is well worth checking out.
