Welcome to the homepage of the artist Ernst Huber!


The oeuvre of Ernst Huber is an important part of Austrian Classical Modernism and is represented in different internal and external museums.


Ernst Huber completed an apprenticeship as a typesetter and besides worked on his career as a painter. The autodidact had his first success in 1919, when the famous Viennese architect Josef Hoffmann saw his works in an exhibition at the Palmenhaus in Vienna. Huber was a member of the Zinkenbacher Malerkolonie (Painters Colony Zinkenbach) and had been friends with the artists Ferdinand Kitt, Franz Zülow, Josef Dobrowsky, Georg Ehrlich und Georg Merkel.


His works are mainly landscapes, the early paintings and watercolours show Lower Austria, Upper Austria and the Salzkammergut. From the 1920s on he travelled a lot and captured his impressions in his paintings.


Ernst Huber preferred to paint oils and watercolours, but he did also reverse glass and tile paintings as well as book illustrations.
