Schiele statue in gallery dedicated to Psychoanalysis

The statue in the previous post is also part of a gallery in the exhibit dedicated to the influence of Freud and psychoanalysis on fin-de-siècle art in Vienna. While Freud himself had little to do with artists, they drew much from him. Freud scholars will recognize the Latin quote on the wall, which Freud cited in The Interpretation of Dreams – “If I cannot bend the Higher Powers, I will move the Infernal regions”.
