(1863–1918), Austrian pictorialist photographer. After a scientific education he travelled widely, and met Stieglitz in New York. He joined the Linked Ring Brotherhood in 1894, and with Heinrich Kühn and Hans Watzek (1848–1903) belonged to the Vienna Trifolium. His speciality was still lifes, and landscapes that closely resembled the popular ‘atmospheric paintings’ of the time: lonely farmhouses at dusk, and ploughmen working under lowering skies. In 1902 he showed a selection of gum prints with the Vienna Secession. Later he turned to graphic art.
