Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel (Wunsiedel, Oberfranken 1881 - Vienna 1965)

The painter and graphic designer studied at the School of Arts in Munich. At the age of 16 he went to Naples and stayed in Italy for a year. In 1898 he returned to Vienna, where he joined the group of Josef Hoffmann, Alfred Roller and Gustav Klimt. Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel then studied under August Eisenmenger and Christian Griepenkerl at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. In addition, he studied etching under William Unger.

From 1905 to 1907 he studied under Carl von Marr at the Academy of Munich. In 1911 he was offered a chair at the School of Arts in Frankfurt/Main but settled in Vienna after differences of opinion. In 1913 and 1914 Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel travelled to Bosnia, Herzegovina and Hungary. After his military service he travelled to Italy and Yugoslavia. He was a member of the Hagenbund from 1919 to 1921 and from 1924 of the Vienna Künstlerhaus. 

When in 1939 the Nazis condemned his art as degenerate, Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel emigrated to Yugoslavia. He mainly stayed in Split and Opatija and returned to Austria in 1952. Until his death he lived in Villach and Vienna. 

In 1952 his works were shown at the Albertina; in 1936 as well as 1950 Ludwig Heinrich Jungnickel exhibited at the Biennale in Venice. The artist painted landscapes and animals, preferring graphic techniques to painting with oil.
