Note: All items are sold "AS IS/AS DESCRIBED", to the best of our knowledge, research and ability. ITEM DESCRIPTION: Here is the 1st of 2 Absolutely Beautiful Mid Century, Early 1960’s, Original Signed Austrian Oil Paintings by the listed artist ‘Kurt Vuković’ (or Vukovic, Austrian, 1897-), whose signature appears lower right in the image area.

From our records: Kurt Vuković was born in 1897 near Vienna, Austria (in the Austro-Hungarian Empire as it was known then). He is primarily known for his paintings of the Austrian Alps, landscapes and floral still lifes which express his love of nature.

The lands of Bohemia and Moravia were under Austrian rule from 1867-1918, so I don’t believe listing him as a ‘Czech’ artist would be quite correct (though Czech is the spoken language), moreover I think he would be considered ‘Austrian’ or more politically correct ‘Austro-Hungarian’ during that time period.
