Karl Bauer

Born 1905 in Graz, 1908 the family moved to Carinthia, 1925-1930 studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Delug and Bacher.

Afterwards middle school teacher in Vienna, 1935-1938 worked as a painter in Klagenfurt and Munich, 1939-1942 again teaching in Vienna, 1942 military service, 1943-1946 prisoner of war in the USA.

From 1946 until his death in 1993, Karl Bauer lived as a freelance painter in Klagenfurt.

His favorite motifs were, besides the Carinthian landscape, portraits, groups of people and religious themes. The content was given less importance than the composition and the colors. The influences that are evident in him range from the classics of modernism (in Carinthia primarily the early Boeckl, in Munich Hans von Marées) to art developments of the post-war period.
