From the 1910s until her death in 1978, Marianne Fieglhuber-Gutscher created a remarkable body of work that included oil paintings, watercolours and etchings. She mainly found her subjects in her environment using family members and friends as models. So it is mostly people that are predominant in her paintings. Howver, she also explored the genre of the still life, as her flower pictures illustrate, most of which she executed in watercoluor. As a painting woman, she like so many of her contemporaries had to assert herself against the prevailing role models. In addition, two world wars interrupted her workflow. The fact that she managed to earn a reputation as a painter anyway is proof of her great amount of resilience and willpower. Her art was r exhibited in the Vienna Secession and in the Künstlerhaus and discussed in the feature pages of her time on a regular basis. In 1977, her works were shown in a solo exhibition at the Upper Belvedere in Vienna. In 1986 and 1989, she was honoured posthumously with exhibitions in the Moser Gallery in Graz. Regrettably, in the ensuing decades her work was all but forgotten. By the agency of the artist's granddaughters, Widder Fine Arts has been managing the painter's estate since 2020 and has made it its mission to make her work accessible to the general public.
