Ferdinand Karl Gold (1882-1981) Male Nudes

Professor Ferdinand Karl Gold (1882 - 1981) was a famous Austrian painter, graphic artist, watercolorist, and illustrator who was born in Vienna, Austria in 1882. He studied at the Vienna Academy under Sigmund l'Allemand (1840-1910) and William Unger (1837-1932). In 1905 he was awarded a gold prize and took part in the Austrian "Hagenbund", Vienese Artist's Unit (Wiener Kuernstlerhaus) and in the Albercht Duerer Section as well. His talents included artworks in drawing, watercolor, and printmaking. These two figure studies came from a Gallery in Vienna.
