About the artist:

Leopold Forsthuber (1927-2011) inherited his artistic streak from his father, who came from an old Salzburg painter family. The well-known painter Prof. Alfred Deggendorfer taught him the basics of painting and drawing as early as his apprenticeship. Even back then, he was versatile, as he had completed a monumental mural by Prof. Deggendorfer on a typical Salzburg house, the Oberlackengut, and restored it 27 years after completion in 1977.

In later years he attended courses from Prof. Walter Boschan at the Salzburg Adult Education Center and deepened his work through the acquaintance with the painter Jung-Ilsenheim. Leopold Forsthuber became known for his wonderful watercolors and drawings, especially from Salzburg and Austria.

Extract from a description about Leopold Forsthuber: He got his ideas from nature, from his travels, from his beloved mountains, in which he spends every free minute and which repeatedly gives him incentives for new motifs. The trees in particular – his special passion – have always been and continue to find great admiration.”
