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.

Robert Russ, born in Vienna in 1847.  He was best known for watercolors, architectural views, urban genre scenes and landscapes with figures painted in the pure, classical style.  Russ was born into a family of artists - both his father and brother were painters.

He began studying at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts under Albert Zimmermann, who headed the department of landscape art.  Among his colleagues were Emil Jakob Schindler, Eugen Jettel und Rudolf Ribarz. 

In 1871, Russ started teaching landscape painting at the Vienna Academy.  Winning the Reichl Prize in 1880, Russ was elected an honorary member of the Vienna Academy by 1881.

Robert Russ drew inspiration for his work from rich Austrian and Italian landscapes and is credited for having a profound influence on Austrian landscape painting in the last third of the 19th century before his death in 1922.

His works hang at the Villa Borghese and Gardens in Rome, in Gratz, Vienna and many other museums around Europe.
