Brioschi, Anton  

Evan Baker

Member of Brioschi family

(b Vienna, Nov 30, 1855; d Vienna, Aug 20, 1920). Austrian stage designer, son of Carlo Brioschi. After apprenticeship in Munich, he moved to the Hanover court theatre in 1883. In 1885 he joined the Vienna studio and became director on his father’s retirement the following year. He continued to refine the art of stage design and created new works for the Vienna Hofoper, as well as contributing designs to the Burgtheater. These reflect the influence of the flowering ‘Makart’ style in the use of realist scenes imbued with historical accuracy, along with numerous decorative elements and liberal amounts of rich and luminous colours. Although Brioschi’s responsibilities were permanently reduced when Heinrich Lefler and Alfred Roller were chief designers of the Hofoper in the early 1900s, he remained as the chief scenic artist there until his death.
