The Kallir Research Institute, a non-profit foundation established in 2017 to continue the scholarly work of art historian Otto Kallir (1894-1978), has released a digital catalogue raisonne for Austrian painter Egon Schiele (1890-1918). This digital catalogue is based on the print version by Jane Kallir (Otto Kallir's granddaughter), entitled Egon Schiele: The Complete Works, which was published in 1998 and included over 3,000 entries. Timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the artist's death, phase one of Egon Schiele was released in October of 2018 with several hundred additional entries since the print version in 1998. Although Schiele's career was cut short by his death at age 28 from influenza, his output was prolific and the online catalogue raisonne includes digital images of thousands of Schiele's works. Egon Schiele Online also features a selected bibliography, a timeline biography of Schiele, and a list of exhibitions with links to the entries for the works that appeared in each show. The Kallir Institute plans to release catalogues raisonnes for the artists Richard Gerstl and Anna Mary Robertson "Grandma" Moses.
