Biography

Rudolf Eisenmenger came from Transylvania in Romania, but moved with his parents to Vienna in 1921 and studied there. His classic and romantic painting style was also beloved by Nazi officials and he was not suppressed in those times. In 1936 Eisenmenger won a silver medal in the art competitions of the Olympic Games for his work Läufer vor dem Ziel (Runners at the Finishing Line). From 1939-45 he was President of the Vienna Künstlerhaus. In this role, Eisenmenger actively espoused for Jewish artists and the salvation of their works. After World War II he continued to work successfully in Vienna and won, among other awards, the competition for the design of the iron curtain of the Vienna State Opera.
