Born on the 23rd of April 1861 in Vienna, Carl Moll is undoubtedly one of the most exceptional talents of his time. His complex oeuvre shows all his facets - the recurring motifs of his hometown, Vienna, the light-filled landscapes, still lives, and interiors. He was co-founder of the Vienna Secession and director of the gallery Miethke and also a supporter of Klimt.
He organized exhibitions of international artists and brought the first works from Vincent van Gogh to Vienna. Moll became known for his large-format color lithographs and woodcuts. The style of his later landscapes transformed increasingly from the planar painting of the secessionists to spaciousness. Later he turned more and more to Expressionism. In 1931 he received the Golden State Medal and became an honorary citizen of Vienna, where he also died on April 13, 1945.
