Oskar Kokoschka,1886–1980, was an Austrian expressionist painter and writer.

After teaching at the art academy in Dresden (1920–24), Kokoschka traveled extensively in Europe and N Africa before moving to London in 1938. In 1937 his works in German galleries were removed by the Nazi regime. After World War II he lived in Switzerland and established an international summer school in Salzburg „ Schule des Sehens“. Kokoschka was influenced by the elegant work of Klimt, but soon developed his own expressionist style.

His early portraits emphasize psychological tension (e.g., the portrait of Hans Tietze and his wife, 1909; Mus. of Modern Art, New York City). The same restless, energetic draftsmanship is revealed in his expressionist landscapes and his striking posters and lithographs. His landscapes include Jerusalem (Detroit Inst. of Arts) and View of Prague (Phillips Memorial Gall., Washington, D.C.).
