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.
