Franz Xaver KOSLER (1864-1905) ✿

Franz Xaver KOSLER (1864-1905) born in Vienna, was one of the most celebrated Orientalist painters of his generation. Kosler began his artistic studies at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste (The Academy of Fine Arts) in Vienna, studying under the renowned Austrian Orientalist artist Leopold Carl Müller. Highly influenced by Müller's work, Kosler went on to follow in his tutor's footsteps, travelling abroad to paint the Near East first hand. His richly coloured genre scenes and tender close-up portraits of young sitters dressed in traditional clothing, echo the work of his mentor. Setting off in 1886, Kosler travelled to Dalmatia, Montenegro, Albania and Egypt.
