biography of Rudolf Schwaiger

The Austrian sculptor Rudolf Schwaiger was trained at the Academy of Visual Arts in Vienna. From 1946 he was one of the first students of Fritz Wotruba (1907-1975), one of the most important Austrian sculptors of the 20th century. Previously, Schwaiger followed a woodcarving course in Hallstatt. His sculptures in bronze and wood - mostly female figures - often have an element of sensuality in them, despite their massive and intricate appearance. 'Barocke Weiblichkeit' was once called this way of designing.
