ABOUT







Oskar Kokoschka

Oskar Kokoschka (b. 1886, Pöchlarn, Austria, d. 1980, Montreux, Switzerland) was an Austrian artist, poet and playwright best known for his expressionistic portraits and landscapes. Deemed a degenerate by the Nazis [Kokoschka had commissioned a life-sized sex doll in 1918 which he destroyed during a party], he fled to the United Kingdom in 1938, and lived in Ullapool, Scotland during the war. He became a British citizxen in 1946 and would only regain Austrian citizenship in 1978. He settled and died in Switzerland though.

Typefaces based on his lettering include Grafiker (2013, a brush typeface loosely based on the work of designers Oskar Kokoschka (1886-1980) and Jean Carlu (1900-1997)), and Kokoschka (2012, Ricardo Marcin and Erica Jung).
