Artistic Focus Whatever their medium, Franz Bergmann’s bold, modern paintings – often seeming European in influence – and his large and sometimes eccentric murals, were praised for their dexterous facility, use of brilliant color and poetic quality. Categorized as a Modernist, Bergmann employed the techniques of particular artistic styles – Post-Impressionism, Cubism and Futurism among them – without ever allowing himself to be strictly identified with any of the styles he incorporated into his work.
• Though Franz Bergmann's father was a librarian and frustrated artist and his mother a pianist, it was only after his service for Austria in World War I that he began taking his own art studies seriously.
