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.

Anton Faistauer (1887, St Martin, Salzburg-1930, Vienna), was an extremely versatile artist who excelled in historical and genre painting, landscapes and still lifes.

In 1906 Faistauer was accepted at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. After studying briefly under Christian Griepenkerl and Alois Delug, he left the Academy with Egon Schiele, Franz Wiegele and Robin Christian Andersen in protest against the school's conservative teaching methods. In 1909 they founded the Neukunstgruppe (New Art Group). Their first exhibition was held in Prague in 1910. Until the war broke out, Faistauer traveled to northern Italy, Switzerland and in 1914 to Berlin. In 1915 he moved to Maishofen, Austria to escape the war. Soon after, while journeying through Italy, Faistauer discovered the wondrous application of color by Titian, Tintoretto, and El Greco and soon focused on the French masters, particularly Cezanne. Anton Faistauer's style evolved until characterized by a richly differentiated spectrum of colors. Exhibits in Vienna, Budapest, Munich, and Cologne made the young artist famous.

In 1919 Faistauer played a significant role in the founding of the Progressive Artist's Association in Salzburg called "Der Wassermann". During the 1920s, Faistauer worked as a frescoer in Salzburg, adorning a church in Morzg as well as the entrance hall of Salburg's "Festspielhaus" (Festival House Theatre), designed by Eduard Hütter. In 1923 he published a book examining contemporary Austrian art, "Neue Malerei in Österreich".
