Biography Johann Nepomuk Geller
Johann Nepomuk Geller was born in Vienna. In 1876 he started studying
painting at the Vienna Academy under Christian Griepenkerl. But
financial distress forced him to work as a chromolithographer. He
continued to paint mainly in Wachau in Lower Austria, where he created
many of his popular market scenes.
Later Geller continued his studies at
the academy and attended a school for landscape painting under Eduard
Peithner von Lichtenfels. He was a co-founder of the Hagenbund in 1900,
one of the largest and most progressive groups of artists at the time.
Geller was well traveled, having visited France, Italy and Eastern
Europe and was awarded many prizes.
