Adolf Boehm

Adolf Boehm was an Austrian artist who worked among the German Expressionists and the Wiener Werkstätte. He was a major exponent of Viennese Modernism and one of the most important figures in the modern Austrian art scene. His oeuvre was largely committed to the Vienna Secession and movements which followed, such as the Wiener Werkstätte. He was also a key figure in the development of applied arts in Vienna. Boehm's most renowned works are his sculptures from the first decade of the 20th century, especially the 'Nymph of Vienna' commissioned by the Austrian government. He was also known for his other sculptures from the same period such as 'The May Empress', 'The Viennese Maiden', and 'Girl with a Violin'. His later works like the 'Spring' and 'The Frog King' were also widely acclaimed.
