About the artist
Edmund Adler was born in Vienna, Austria. He worked for a number of years in lithographs before spending three years in Vienna as a student at the Graphic Research Lab. Beginning in 1896, Adler attended the Vienna Academy where, in 1903, he received the Kenyon Traveling Scholarship and decided upon a move to Mannersdorf to begin his career. In 1914 the artist was taken as a prisoner of war with other Austrian painters and spent the entire First World War in Siberia. He later participated in exhibitions with other Austrian and Russian painters while also holding exhibits in Vienna, Dresden and Brunn. Adler was an extremely versatile and capable artist whose abilities allowed him to paint portraits, still life, rural scenes of families and children, and landscapes of the Austrian countryside with much appeal. Great affection was lavished particularly upon his portrayal of children. He received an appointment to Professorship at the Royal Academy in Vienna which he held for a number of years before his death.
