Born 1899 in the little town of Goisern, Austria, Josef Eidenberger began his artistic career as a landscape painter, showing great perception for the mood of the local countryside. In 1923 he enrolled in the famed Graphic Academy of art in Vienna, and studied under Professor Alfred Cossman. Starting with copper engraving.
Eidenberger soon turned to etching as a medium. His specialized studies and love for subtle color led him to the complicated process of color etching. Greatly influenced by the Austrian etcher Luigi Kasimir, Eidenberger improved his technique from plate to plate.
