Marie Egner (1850-1940) was an Austrian artist born in Radkersburg. At an early age she exhibited talents in music and art, and from 1867 took drawing lessons with the landscape painter Hermann von Königsbrunn, and later with Carl Jungheim in Düsseldorf where she concentrated on oil painting. In 1875 she moved to Vienna where she had a private painting school in her studio until 1910.
Along with Olga Wisinger-Florian, Tina Blau, and Broncia Koller-Pinell, Marie Egner was one of the most important female Austrian artists at the turn of the 20th Century. Her lyric landscape and flower motifs in the style of open-air painting are among the most impressive examples of Austrian mood-impressionism.
