Biography

Austrian Josef Humplik was a painter, sculptor, graphic artist and medalist, who studied in Znojmo (TCH, in German Znaim) and Wien (Vienna). During World War I he was wounded in a crash as a pilot and then worked as an official war artist. In 1918 he was given a 30% disability rating due to his wounds. He later specialized in portrait busts and worked for the Vienna Burgtheater and the Au-garten Porcelain Manufactory. Particularly famous were his busts of artists and a number of mon-uments in public places. His statue The Runners was given Honorable Mention at the 1936 Olympic Games. In 1937 Humplik became a professor in Wien. In Austria, he was awarded the National Prize and, after World War II, the Honorary Award of the city of Wien.
