Constantin Stoitzner was born in 1863 in Busau, Austia and died in Vienna in 1934.
He was a landscape- and figure painter from the Austrian School. Stoitzner received his formal art education at the ‘Academie de Vienna’ With portraitist and historical painter Christian Griepenkerl (1839-1916) and portrait painter August Eisenmenger (1830-1907).
He is also the father of painter and engraver Joseph Stoitzner (1884-unknown).
Stoitzner began his successful career travelling the Alps. He became well known for his very precise mountain landscapes and the architecture of the surrounding villages. He would later use his talents as a figure painter to
capture some of the village residents in detailed miniature portraits.
These wonderful detailed portraits were incredibly successful.
The local characters that he painted were more than portraits. He is able to capture minute nuances that are unique to the subject’s personality and rarely ever captured in such a miniature format.
