Weiler Max

Absam *1910 - †2001 Vienna

The oeuvre of Max Weiler is spreading from the 1920ies to the end of the 20th century. The art of this important European painter represents a special Austrian form of International Modern Art. She speaks her own language and reacts sensitive to the changes of time. The observation of nature has a central role. Weiler sees nature as a permanent growing and becoming, a cosmic order, that he expresses through alternative forms of painting, beyond landscape art. The intellectual in nature can be seen as the focus of his work.

Max Weiler was born in Hall in Tyrol 1910. He studied painting from 1930 to 1937 with Karl Sterrer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. 1964 he became head of the master class for painting. Besides panel paintings he also produced a new series of wall paintings with profane and sacral motifs, mosaics, glass paintings and ceramic wall pictures. Weiler’s artistic language was naturalistic in the beginning, but soon he developed the characteristic lyrical abstraction that became typical for him. Countless public commissions, international exhibitions and prizes testify his great importance.
