Oskar Werner was 18 years old when he made his stage bow at the Burgtheater in Wien.
He was a lifelong pacifist, a pure, traditional mime, a gifted reciter.

“Werner’s definitive screen performance was the romantic intellectual Jules in Francois Truffaut’s Jules et Jim (1962), though it was his portrayal of the philosophical Dr. Schumann in Ship of Fools (1965) that earned the actor his only Oscar nomination. His friendship with Truffaut soured after their second collaboration, Fahrenheit 451 (1967); exhibiting profound disillusionment, Truffaut complained (not without justification) that Werner had become a “cold” performer.

Oskar Werner died at the age of 62.

Arnulf Rainer is an Austrian painter and is internationally renowned for his abstract informal art.

In his early years, Rainer was influenced by the Surrealism. In 1950, he founded the Hundsgruppe (dog group) together with Ernst Fuchs, Arik Brauer and Josef Mikl. After 1954, Rainers style evolved towards Destruction of Forms, with blackenings, overpaintings and maskings of illustrations and photographs, dominating his later work. He was close to the Vienna Actionism, featuring body art and painting under drug influence.

His works are shown in the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. As the culmination of the appraisal of his work, in 1993 the Arnulf Rainer Museum opened in New York, United States.

Nitsch’s work, which can be considered both ritualistic and existential, first drew attention in the early 1960s when he exhibited a skinned and mutilated lamb. The lamb was crucified against a white fabric-covered wall, with the entrails removed and displayed below a white table, splashed with blood and hot water.
His works can be found in important collections all over the world and his designs for Theaters and Opera Houses, like the Wiener Staatsoper underline his status as accepted artist.
