Rudolf Hausner: Picture "Evening Landscape"

The evening landscape receives its effect thanks to the reduction of the motif. The structure is created with the help of sharply drawn borders. The horizon creates a sharp outline of the picture. The deep-red sky darkens to the end of the page. Beneath it, on the dark ground there are a couple of mysterious objects. Paralel clouds look like a planet which has a distant resemblance to Jupiter. The middle field is a little bit lighter. A sphere, looking rather as a billiards ball than a moon, is hanging a little bit, carefully modelled, as a correspondence and the opposition to the flat planet nearside, free in the imaginative space. Nearside there is srticktly outlined with white lines, but open to the top, rotation body, extended into the picture, a further shape presents a bobbin, to the right there is a lighthouse, which is interpreted as a beginning of many things. (Hans Hollaender)

Rudolf Hausner, 1914-1995, is considered the most outstanding representatives of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. In the 50s he became famous when he started to present in his works through the leitmotif figure of "Adam": "I can see the world only by myself!"

Rudolf Hausner's Œuvre is unique. All attempts to classify it in the usual categories of art history, must fail. Years ago, Wieland recognize Smith in the only psychoanalytic painter Hausner of Rudolf as equivalent enter into his reality and subconscious. The artist created the art character of Adam in his image because he knew no one better and deeper and was able to convey, as himself. "Painting, I enter into my subconscious and find important basics for my existence", Rudolf Hausner described his own contribution to the international surrealism.

With this guiding principle, the artist has created a form of the twentieth century: the curious, enlightened, helpless, but also skeptical contemporaries, who wants to go to the bottom of things. Identifying us with him, his work on the individual points. The collective self portrait of modern man succeeded in Hausner.

The chronology of his activities of the exhibition reads like a bulleted list of the cultural hotspots of the world: 1959 documenta II, Kassel; 1960 Guggenheim Museum, New York; 1963 Biennale Sao Paulo; 1980 Kunstlerhaus Vienna; 1982 Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Lisbon.

In 1994, the city of Vienna honoured Rudolf Hausner, who held professorships in Hamburg and in Vienna, with a major retrospective
