Biography  
Emil Rau


Emil Rau received his artistic training from Leon Pohle and Ferdinand Wilhelm Pauwels at the Academy in Dresden.  In 1879, he changed to the Munich Academy as a student of Alexander Wagner and Wilhelm von Lindenschmit.  From 1883 he worked as a freelance artist in Munich.

Although he comes from the Lindenschmit School, Rau is strongly influenced by the Defregger circle in his choice of rural motifs.  His works are found today in numerous public collections, including the Lenbachhaus in Munich. (cko)
