A suitably neurotic Viennese who finally committed suicide after a brief love-affair with Schoenberg's wife. This is a self-portarit from 1901, somehow reminiscent of Munch.

Portrait of Henrika Cohn, 1908. None too original in its style, but attractive.

A self-portrait from 1908, the year in which he killed himself, showing himself laughing mirthlessly. Quite strikingly horrible.
