RIEGER AUGUST

Wien 1886 - 1941 Wien

August Rieger was born on July 1, 1886 in Vienna. He was originally destined for the priestly profession, but then entered the financial service. In the middle of his theological studies he felt himself called to be a painter. He immortalized the scenic beauty of his hometown finding his motifs in the still untouched nature of the Danube and the Wienerwald. His sunny, bright landscapes always shined in masterly lighting. Paintings by August Riegers are extremely rare in the art market. Rieger is represented in several collections: the Austrian Gallery Belvedere, the Vienna Museum, the Leopold Museum, and the Albertina as well as in important private collections in Austria and abroad. August Rieger died on the 22nd of April 1941 in Vienna.
