EMIL RANZENHOFER was a prolific artist from the late 1800s to the early 1900's in Vienna. In the family collection handed down through his only grandchild, John M. Kanner, there are many oil paintings, etchings, sketches, and water colors. Thanks to the internet, I recently discovered that he also designed Exlibris (bookplates), posters, postcards, telegrams and certificates for the Jewish National Fund, and illustrated many books.
Since he served as a war artist for the Kriegspressequartier in Austria, many of his posters, postcards, and sketches are scenes of WWI. Many of these sketches of war scenes have handwritten notations (in German script) describing the people and places depicted.
As this site is developed, it will be updated with additional information.
Examples of one some of his artwork are shown on the second page of this website.
I am always looking for more information about Emil Ranzenhofer, the art of his time, his involvement in WWI at the Kriegspressequartier, his work for the National Jewish Fund, etc. If you have any information to share, would like information from me, or if you have any questions please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
