Broncia Koller-Pinell

Broncia Koller-Pinell

Resisting the idea that serious artists were single, poor, and above all, male, expressionist painter Broncia Koller-Pinell insisted her work be taken on its merits.

Broncia Koller-Pinell

Broncia Koller’s daughter, Silvia Koller, Saul Pineles supported her mother’s artistic aspirations. At the age of eighteen Broncia Koller began private studies under the sculptor Josef Raab (?–1883) and after his death in 1883 continued under the painter Alois Delug (1859–1930).

Austria: Jewish Women Artists

Although modern Austrian art attracted a high proportion of Jewish women, most of them are forgotten today both because of the male ethos of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century life which relegated women to the domestic domain, and because of the Holocaust which robbed many Jewish women artists of their lives and erased their artistic achievements from popular recognition.
