Detailed information about Theodor Hörmann (Imst, Tirol 1840 - 1895 Graz:

Theodor von Hoermann was officer in the military campaigns of 1859 and 1866 in Italy and against Prussia. From 1873 to 1875 he studied at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, his teachers were Eduard Peithner v. Lichtenfels and Anselm Feuerbach. For nearly ten years Hörmann taught freehand drawing at the k. u. k. military school in St. Poelten. Only in 1884, after his military service, he devoted himself completely to the graphic art. He went to Hungary twice. From 1886 to 1889 Raphael Collin was his teacher in Paris, then Theodor Hoermann travelled to the Bretagne, the Channel Islands and to Barbizon. As a consequence the painter studied modern french painting. Theodor von Hörmann constantly worked outdoors. He was in contact with Emil-Jakob Schindler. Back in Vienna Hoermann became speaker of the opposition within the Kuenstlerhaus. Every year he submitted several works to the exhibitions of the association of graphic artists. More than once his paintings were refused. In 1893, for the first time, he exhibited a representative collection of his paintings in the "Künstlerhaus" in Vienna. Favouring a state gallery of modern art, Theodor Hoermann can be seen as a pioneer of what was to become the "Wiener Secession".
