Biography from Richard Rhoda Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Olga Wisinger-Florian, born in 1844 Vienna and a lifelong resident until her death in 1926, was an important Austrian Mood Impressionist painter during “Fin de Siecle” Austria, 1848-1938.

Having originally trained as a pianist under Julius Epstein, Olga, at nearly 30 years of age, began to study painting under Melchior Fritsch and August Schaeffer in the mid-1870s and under Emil Jakob Schindler in 1880. Her main motif was cultivated nature, especially parks, gardens and flower arrangements.

In the late 1890’s she changed her focus to forest landscapes, and her work began to exhibit rich and increasingly iridescent coloring; perhaps ahead of her time as a precursor of French Impressionism.

By the early 1880’s, Olga Wisinger-Florian had achieved success at international exhibitions, and later participated in the annual exhibition of the Vienna Künstlerhaus and the Munich Glass Palace and received a medal at the World’s Columbian Exhibition in Chicago in 1893.

Throughout her life, the artist dedicated herself to sociopolitical issues, contributed to the “Association of Writers and Artists in Vienna”, and became a delegate of the “New Austrian Peace Movement”. Her works hang in galleries throughout Germany and Austria as well as in private collections.

Kunsthandel Giese und Schweiger, Vienna
