Realistic Schools: Vienna School of Fantastic Realism

The Vienna School of Fantastic Realism

is a group of artists founded in Vienna in 1946.


Ernst Fuchs

It includes Ernst Fuchs, Arik Brauer, Rudolf Hausner, Wolfgang Hutter, Anton Lehmden andFritz Janschka, all students of Professor Albert Paris Gütersloh at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts.


Arik Brauer

It was Gütersloh’s emphasis on the techniques of the Old Masters that gave the fantastic realist painters a grounding in realism (expressed with a clarity and detail some have compared to early Flemish painting) combined with religious and esoteric symbolism.
