Go Back


1930. Colour woodcut, signed, dated and annotated “No. 7” on image lower right, 35.4 x 41.9cm. Original frame.

Born in Bolzano in northern Italy, Carl Moser studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and the Académie Julian in Paris, later travelling to Germany, Italy, Corsica and Brittany. Influenced by the French impressionists and Japanese art, Moser became well-known for his woodcuts. His prints were exhibited in the first international graphic art exhibition in Leipzig in 1914, and in one of Vienna's leading galleries, Galerie Miethke. During this time, the Royal Museum of Prints and Drawings in Vienna purchased a great number of his coloured woodcuts. The outbreak of WWI seemed to have curtailed his career in Austria, and his exhibitions were then limited to Italy. His colour woodcuts were exhibited in Turin, Rome, Milan and, until 1936, in almost every Biennale in Venice. Despite his fame, Moser, who had returned to Bolzano, was not able to be financially successful in his later years. Ref: Albertina, Vienna.
