OK - this signum was of crucial importance for the development of art of the 20th century. His painting and drawing style was indicative.

Oskar Kokoschka was a significant pioneer of Expressionism as a painter, graphic artist and writer. He studied at the Vienna School of Arts and crafts and was influenced by the art of Vincent van Gogh, Ferdinand Hodlers and by the artists of the Vienna secession to Gustav Klimt. At the time of the Third National Socialism, his art was considered "degenerate" so he first fled to Prague and later lived in exile in London.

The artist gained special fame through his portrait images and views of the city. Also in his flower paintings, Kokoschka not simply painted from nature, but constructed a new artistic reality, without completely abstract the subject of the image. In 1953, he founded the International Summer Academy of fine arts, which he called "School of seeing" in Salzburg.
