Wien 1884 - 1951 Bramberg / Pinzgau
Josef Stoitzner was born on February 24, 1884 in Vienna. As the son of the well-known landscape painter Konstantin Stoitzner, he studied at the Viennese Kunstgewerbeschule Grafik with Anton Ritter von Kenner and attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna with Franz Rumpler in 1906-1908. From 1905 onwards Stoitzner worked as an artist. From 1916 to 1919, he studied landscape painting at the Vienna Women's Academy as well as at the Akademie der bildenden Künste in Vienna. He was a member of the Vienna Secession and the Viennese Künstlerhaus. He painted landscapes, still lives, interiors, and also worked graphically. Josef Stoitzner remained obligated to mood-impressionism, his early or late winter landscapes are particularly characteristic, in which precisely arranged branches of bare trees contrast with the soft brightness of snow stains and the clear evening sky. Paintings of his hand can be found in the Austrian Gallery in Vienna, in the Historical Museum of the City of Vienna and in the Heimatmuseum in Vienna. Josef Stoitzner died on the 9th of July 1951 in Bramberg in Pinzgau.
