Born in Vienna Austria. As a young man, he served with the Austrian Air force and was wounded in an air
crash in the First World War. He was employed as a designer with his family's business, which produced
luxury articles. He immigrated to Canada in 1926 and settled in Saskatoon. There, he studied art under
Augustus Kenderdine and attended night classes in art at the Technical Collegiate. In 1936, he became art
instructor and head of the art department at the Technical Collegiate. In the early thirties, he submitted
paintings to various exhibitions with the Art Association of Montreal and the Royal Canadian Academy of
Arts. His work was well received.
Working in watercolour, oils and tempera, he sensitively portrayed figures, interiors and landscapes. His
best known works are forest interior scenes. He depicted decaying tree stumps and vegetation with startling
detail. He also did wood carvings and copper relief works, but is best known for his paintings. His work
is represented in fine public collections such as the Academy of Applied Art, Vienna, Austria, Grand
Central Galleries, NYC, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Art Gallery of Ontario, to mention a few.
