Biography   Karoly Alexy


The bronze modeler Karoly Alexy (1816-1880) visited the Sunday classes at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts from 1834.  He became a student in the sculpture class of Josef Klieber.  In 1841, he made a portrait bust and an equestrian statue of Queen Victoria and thereby gained a great reputation.

After the revolution in the Empire of Austria in 1848 and 1849, he moved to London and worked in the studio of William Behnes.  He then worked as a freelance sculptor.  In 1861, Alexy returned to Hungary, where he worked as a drawing teacher.

Today, works of Alexy are in important museum collections, including the Heeresgeschichtliche Museum in Vienna. (cko)
