Vienna * 1933 - † 2002 Vienna
Alfred Kornberger was born in Vienna 1933. His work belongs into the Austrian tradition of nudes, from Egon Schiele to Alfred Hrdlicka.
Kornberger attended the master class of Robin Christian Andersen at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. His early work is influenced by Cubism and Surrealism. In his cycle “Maschinendarstellungen”/Depictions of machines he busied himself with technical progress.
From the late 1960s on Kornberger concentrated on the theme of the female body. His nudes had parallels within the group of the so called “Naturalisten”, who fostered objective figurative painting. The sculptor Alfred Hrdlicka, the painters Fritz Martinz and Hans Eisler as well as Adolf Frohner, belonged to this group.
Kornberger’s late works of the 1990s are painted in a more pictorial way and show the influence of expressionistic elements.
