Erwin Puchinger

[Austria] (b 1875/d 1944)

In 1891 and 1892, Puchinger began evening drawing classes at the newly opened (1888) Graphic Arts and Research Institute .This was an experimental institute that trained professionals in design and the graphic arts. Next, he studied at the School of Arts and Crafts (Later the School of Applied Art) . His earliest known works are landscape and architectural drawings of 1892 and 1893, which were already of a professional quality. (..) When he was in the last years of his studies, a group of young architects and artists, Otto Wagner, Josef Hoffman and Joseph Maria Olbrich, rejected the opulent and decadent style of those days and created a new union known as the Union of Austrian Artists that is known as the Vienna Secession... Erwin Puchinger achieved great success and acclamation in the Paris International Exhibition of 1900...
