Josef Stoitzner (Vienna 1884 - Bramberg im Pinzgau 1951)

The son of the landscape painter Konstantin Stoitzner, Josef studied first at the "Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule" where his teacher was Anton Ritter von Kenner. From 1906 to 1908 he was a disciple of Franz Rumpler at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. From 1905 on he taught painting himself and in 1909 he received his teaching diploma. From 1922 on he was in charge of drawing classes at Austrian educational institutions in Vienna, Traiskirchen, Wiener Neustadt, Graz-Liebenau and, from 1937 on, at secondary schools for boys in Vienna. He succeeded Tina Blau at the "Wiener Frauenakademie" where he taught form 1916 to 1919; later on, he worked at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts from 1932 to 1934. He then moved to the Pinzgau (Salzburg).

Stoitzner was a member of numerous artists' association such as "Der Kreis", the "Wiener Secession" and the "Künstlerhaus". He received the gold medal at the Bugra in Leipzig (1914) and the medal of the city of Graz. Until World War II, he tended to paint landscapes, still lives and interiors in the tradition of atmospheric impressionism. Harmony of form and colour is a characteristic of the painter's work. 

A graphic designer, Joseph Stoitzner preferred color woodcuts and lithography, always in the tradition of idealistic realism.
