Anton Kolig (1886–1950) is among the most eminent Austrian painters from the first half of the 20th century. He was a prominent representative of the dynamic figural painting that was typical of his time. His works are characterised by a masterly energetic hand and vibrantly luminous colours. The main themes of Kolig’s paintings were portraits and figural allegories. The presentation at the Leopold Museum is the first comprehensive solo exhibition of works by Anton Kolig to be held in Vienna in over 50 years. The Leopold Museum is especially well placed to host such an exhibition, as it houses the most comprehensive collection of works by the artist in a museum with more than 20 paintings. The presentation will feature approximately 100 works by Kolig, including 70 paintings and 30 works on paper.
