Biography

Austrian sculptor Alfons Riedel studied from 1918-25 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wien (Vienna). He frequently received public orders from the city of Wien, but he could never live well from his art and was chronically short of money during his life. In 1941, Riedel joined the Nazi Party after some unsuccessful attempts to obtain a public contract. From 1942-45 he served at the Eastern Front with the German Wehrmacht, and until the end of 1945 was a Russian prisoner of war for half a year. During the 1950s Riedel vehemently pleaded for an amendment to the Social Security Act for artists. He was also President of the Künstlerhaus Vienna from 1961-65.
