Austrian Painter Rudolf Wacker (1893 -1939)


The Austrian painter, Rudolf Wacker started his career as a graphic artist; in 1920, after spending 5 years in Russian captivity as a prisoner of war, he had lived in Berlin where he dedicated himself to Expressionism. In 1922, living in his home town Bregenz, Austria, he took a style change towards the New Objectivity. Rudolf Wacker was a founding member of the Artists' Association "The Circle." He was a close friend with other Swiss painter Adolf Dietrich, another member of the "The Circle."


The painter was openly opposed to the cultural policies of the Nazis. He suffered a heart attack after an interrogation by the Gestapo and died soon afterwards in his parents' house in Bregenz.
