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

Fritz Wotruba was born in Vienna in 1907.  His work is determined by the geometrical abstraction with the cube as the basic form.  However, he did not understand himself as an exponent of the ‘Postcubism’.  Wotruba was trained in the techniques of engraving, stamping, drawing and sculpture.

During the Second World War, the artist emigrated to Switzerland.  From 1945, he worked as a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.  In 1948 and in 1952, he exhibited at the Venice Biennale.  He was also represented three times at the documenta in Kassel. 

Many statues of Wotruba are in public parks in Vienna.  His biggest work is the so-called ‘Wotruba Church’ in Vienna-Mauer, whose completion in 1976 he did not experience.
