Peter BISCHOF, born in 1934 in Vienna, underwent his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna during the 1950s under the guidance of Boeckl and Gütersloh. Peter Bischof’s artistic achievements were honored with numerous solo exhibitions, the first of which took place in 1959 at the Viennese gallery adjacent to St. Stephan. He was a valued member of the artistic inner circle surrounding Msgr. Otto Mauer. From 1958 onward, he actively participated in exhibitions and graphic biennials both nationally and internationally, including Europe, America, Japan, and India. As a member and later vice-president of the Vienna Secession from 1970 to 1971, he contributed to the development of the art movement. His early representations conveyed dynamic, almost dance-like physicality, which later transitioned into a contemplative and static portrayal of the human body. The artist resided and worked in Kösslwang, Upper Austria.
On August 5, 2021, Peter Bischof passed away.
