Adolf A. Osterider

Adolf A. Osterider

Press release

Adolf A. Osterider (1924–2019) was among the prominent representatives of a form of lyrical Expressionism in Styria, whereby he achieved unequal mastery in watercolour painting, above all. Besides the depiction of landscapes, he increasingly devoted himself in cycles to the theme of the Commedia dell’Arte and its characters. Osterider was also an important teacher. Following studies under Hans Adametz and Rudolf Szyszkowitz at the Ortweinschule in Graz and under Sergius Pauser at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, he himself worked as a teacher at the Ortweinschule from 1956 onwards, where he ran the master classing for painting from 1965 until 1986 (with some interruptions). The exhibition in the Neue Galerie Graz featuring selected works coincides with the presentation of a book about the man and artist written by friends, acquaintances and companions, marking what would have been his 100th birthday.
