Still lifes are among Rudolf Hradil’s preferred motifs. At Hradil there is seldom still life clearly excluded from the environment. The surroundings of the landscape or the interior flow into them from all sides. A precise definition of the still life as a special genre of his work is not possible. Rather, the artist puts together individual building blocks to create something still life-like.
Rudolf Hradil, born in Salzburg in 1925, studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
Scholarships and working stays took him to France, England, the USA, Switzerland and Italy, among other places.
