Questions

Q 1. Identify

He wanted to become a professional artist, but his aspirations were ruined because he failed the entrance exam of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. He was rejected twice by the institute, once in 1907 and again in 1908; the institute considered that he had more talent in architecture than in painting.

He painted hundreds of works, but he rarely painted people, the cause of which was speculated by LIFE to be either his unwillingness, lack of skill or profound disinterest in people. His paintings are preoccupied with architecture such as public places, buildings, and farmhouses.
