French composer Camille Saint-Saëns (Oct. 9, 1835 - 1921) was one of the latest of the late Romantics…
Debussy said of him, unkindly: “I have a horror of sentimentality, and I cannot forget that its name is Saint-Saëns.” M. Camille on his part retaliated: “The only reason I have stayed in Paris to speak ill of Pelléas et Mélisande.”

"Some one said: ‘The dead writers are remote from us because we know so much more than they did.’ Precisely, and they are that which we know."

and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is."

Egon Schiele, Vienna (ca. 1915) by Johannes Fischer

Schiele only rarely had his portrait taken by a photographer, the most impressive images (a serie of 8 portraits in 1914) were made by Anton Josef Trčka, who signed his works with «Antios». Johannes Fischer is the second best known photographer, who portrayed Schiele. In contrast to Trčka’s expressive portraits of the artist, Schiele presents himself for Fischer one year later in a completely different fashion. The images are more classic and unpretentious, even though in this largely unknown portrait, Schiele’s positioning of hands stands out.
