SMU Distinguished Professor of Art History Emerita Alessandra Comini Updates

The first half of 2017 has been very good to me. Three of my scholarly books were brought out in new editions (Schiele in Prison, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt) and I published another crime novel, The Kollwitz Calamities in my Megan Crespi Series. This is my first Krimi in which a WOMAN artist is the subject!

April saw me in Europe for three lectures in Austria and one in Switzerland, plus being featured in two separate documentary films about my 1963 discovery of the 1912 prison cell of Egon Schiele. Here below is a photo of the discoverer in that (refurbished cell, now a museum) still alive in 2017.
