Rudolf Rossler   Austrian   1864 - 1934

The work of Rudolf Rossler is delightfully reminiscent of old romantic days of delicate figures and dimples cherubs.  Born in 1864 in Gablonz, Bohemia, he became a celebrated painter of the Austrian school and specialized in allegorical subjects.  The artist made his mark as an outstanding draftsman and a superb, yet subtle, colorist.

Rossler was a student under Professor's Hauser and Berger at the Art Academy in Vienna.  Both of these instructors were academic artists who specialized in portraits and genre scenes.  Becoming popular and successful quite early in his career, he was also an instructor at the Viennese School for Arts and Crafts between 1887 and 1893.

Despite the sentimental appeal and beauty of his grown figures, it was the little one's that this artist included in many of his works that drew attention.  Beginning as a student in Vienna he painted babies; not out of any interest or fondness initially, but only because of their soft beauty.  Many of the studies of babies that he painted he used in his big pictures as cupids, and so it was that every cupid in every picture is more or less of a portrait. This did away with much of the stiffness and conventionality in his pictures and greatly enhanced their charm.  From these early studies he also created cupids for many kinds of card's and menus as a means to support himself.  Making little attempt to broaden this field of work, Rossler thus became known as a painter of cherubs.
