His work is noted for its intensity. The twisted body shapes and the expressive line that characterize Schiele’s paintings and drawings mark the artist as an early exponent of Expressionism, although still strongly associated with the art nouveau movement.

Greek Orthodox monks built 20 monasteries atop rock pillars at Meteora (Thessaly - Central Greece) overlooking the Thessalian Plain, from the 10th to the 16th century, in order to get away from Byzantine politics and raiding Turks. The thing that makes Meteora so special is the monasteries on the top of the rock towers. This place is something like monasteries kingdom.
