Victor Heinrich Seifert (1870-1953)
The artist Victor Heinrich Seifert was born in Döbling in 1870. He is mostly known for his fountain figures and war memorials, which are cast mainly in bronze. Seifert studied at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Munich and the Academy of Art in Berlin. His teachers were Ernst Herter, Ludwig Manzel and Peter Breuer. Several study trips have taken him to Paris, Italy, Brussels and London, where he spent quite some time before he became a professor in Berlin. His works can be admired at many public spaces. (nlu)
