Franz von Lenbach (1836-1904) was a German painter known primarily for his portraits of prominent personalities from the nobility, the arts, and industry.
Heinrich Kautsch (1859-1943), was an Austrian sculptor and medallist who had been working in Paris since 1889 and in 1893 was a member of the Jury of Fine Arts at the Chicago World’s Fair. In addition to medals and plaques, Heinrich Kautsch also created a number of funerary monuments, which can be found in Amsterdam, Prague, Meran, and Salzburg.
