Handzeichnungen, is a portfolio of 15 collotype prints after original watercolors and drawings by Egon Schiele, four of which are in color. It was published by Verlag Eduard Strache, Vienna, Prague, Leipzig, 1920, in an edition of 510. A first group numbered I - X were hand signed by Schiele and included an original drawing by Schiele. The art images were printed by Kunstanstalt Max Jaffe, Vienna; the portfolio with printed written pages was printed by Gesellschaft fur Graphische Industrie, Wien VI.

Although Egon Schiele’s Handzeichnungen portfolio was published posthumously in 1920, after the big successful of his 1917 portfolio of monochromatic prints entitled Zeichnungen, the artist was already planning a bigger and more elaborate follow-up - upon his untimely death in 1918. Schiele’s first publisher approved the Handzeichnungen’s publication and  he also saw the opportunity to showcase Schiele’s work from what had been an entirely mono-chromatic collection of prints (Zeichnungen) to an even more highly sophisticated portfolio including color collotype print work: Handzeichnungen.
