Geyling, Rudolf (Austrian, 1838-1904)

Return To Glossary

Rudolf Geyling (1839-1904) was a renowned 19th Century Viennese oil and glass painter.

Son of the famous historical painter Franz Geyling, Rudolf was granted a scholarship from the Vienna Academy for his "Hagen and Danube Nymphs" painting, after which he was sent to study art in Italy. Here he stayed between 1872 and 1873, before returning to his hometown of Vienna.

In the 1880s, Rudolf took control of the family business after his uncle – Carl Geyling – died. Rudolf garnered a reputation for being a skilled glass painter in his own right, and his works can be viewed in various Austrian churches such as Vienna's Cathedral of St. Stephen.
