Adolf Kaufmann (Landkreis Troppau 1848 - Vienna 1916)

The landscape and marine painter, at first an autodidact, finalized his studies under Emile van Marcke de Lummen in Paris, a city that was to be a source of fascination for Adolf Kaufmann. The artist went on several trips around Europe and to the Orient and lived in Paris, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Munich. In 1890 he settled in Vienna but kept returning to Paris throughout his life.

Between 1890 and 1913 he exhibited frequently at expositions in the Vienna Künstlerhaus and the Munich Glaspalast. In addition, he travelled to Normandy and Brittany. While staying in France he signed with his pseudonym A. Guyot. 

Adolf Kaufmann was influenced by the French "paysage intime"; he skilfully imitated the Barbizon Painters, a group he had met in 1870. Similar to Schindler, his paintings are somewhat poetic and atmospheric. He was an excellent observer and tried to depict nature's contrasts and intense colours on his canvas. Adolf Kaufmann mainly painted woods and trees but also ponds and puddles.
