About the Artwork Oskar Kokoschka (1963) by Erling Mandelmann   3

Oskar Kokoschka

Oskar Kokoschka was an Austrian painter, poet, and playwright known for his expressionistic style and his ability to convey intense emotions through his works. 

Kokoschka studied at the School of Applied Arts in Vienna, and later at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. His early works were marked by their traditional style and their focus on landscapes and portraits, but over time, he began to experiment with more abstract and expressionistic forms.

Kokoschka gained recognition in the early 20th century for his innovative and emotionally charged works, which often depicted distorted figures and exaggerated colors. He was a leading figure of the Expressionist movement, which sought to convey the subjective experience of the world through art.

In addition to his work as a painter, Kokoschka was also a prolific writer and playwright, and his works often explored themes related to love, death, and the human condition.

Kokoschka's works have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, including the Tate Modern in London, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Gallery in Prague. He received numerous awards and honors for his contributions to the art world, including the Grand Austrian State Prize in 1960.
