An assertive modernist painter, Wilhelm Thony studied art in Munich, Germany, and first earned a reputation in Austria where, rebelling against traditional academic painting, he led several "Secessions" including in Graz, Austria.  From his native country he received the recognition of the Austrian Gold Cross of Merit with Crowns and Swords.

In 1931, he left Austria for Switzerland, and then via Paris, migrated to the United States where from about 1938, he lived in New Yor (showing 500 of 3165 characters).
