Welcome to the homepage of the artist Anton Kolig!


Anton Kolig is one of the most important Austrian artists of the 20th century, his expressive works impress with their very intense colors.


The painters Anton Kolig, Sebastian Isepp, Franz Wiegele and Anton Mahringer spent a lot of time together in Nötsch in Carinthia. They formed a specific artistic movement within the first half of the 20th century Austrian art, called the Nötscher Kreis (Circle of Nötsch).


Anton Kolig did many male nudes as well as still lifes and portraits. He preferred monumental paintings and admired Michelangelo, Hans von Marées and Lovis Corinth. Some of his paintings are reflections of his personal religious sense. During a bombardment in in 1944 two-thirds of his works were destroyed. Anton Kolig is represented in the Austrian Gallery Belvedere, in the Military History Museum and in the Leopold Collection as well as in the Collection Essl and in the Art Gallery of Carinthia.

His grandson is the painter, sculptor and object artist Cornelius Kolig.
