Carl Fahringer (1874 – 1952), Austrian

Carl Fahringer was a very well-known Austrian impressionist, landscape and animalist painter of the late 19th – first half of the 20th century. He studied at the Vienna Academy under Allemand and Eisenmenger and at the Academy of Munich under Marr. He traveled through Europe, Orient, Balkan, Africa, Java, Bali and Sumatra. In 1929-1945 he was Professor of the Vienna Academy. Fahringer was especially famous for his animalist paintings.

After completing his studies in Vienna, in 1901 Carl Fahringer traveled through Istria, Dalmatia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Turkey and Romania. He got inspired from the Balkan pulsating oriental life. This inspiration had an impact on his painting style. Later, during his Munich studies, he laid the foundation to his impressionistic color intensive style of painting, He was particularly successful in reproduction of the colorful crowd of people on markets or in tropical areas. In 1922 he went from Holland over to Java, Sumatra and Bali.

This lexicon is a result of my 15 years long period of researching & documenting the personalities and the artworks of the foreign painters, sculptors, illustrators, and photographers having visited different spots of the geographic territory of Macedonia, there having created works of art there over a 100-years long period i.e. between 1850-1950. Their presence and artwork in the Macedonian milieus represent a notable cultural heritage to the international linkage of the ethnic Macedonians as well as to all the ethnicities living in the picturesque territory of Macedonia and the cultures of modern-day countries spread over parts of the geographic territory of Macedonia. Witnessing the artistic contributions of the foreign artist, we are proud of their Macedonia-themed creative works and experiences. I believe that their artworks, having been inspired and created over the vast region of Macedonia, unite us all in these challenging times, and under the facts and the values of the artistic beauty.
