Willy Eisenschitz

1889 Wien — 1974 Paris

Willy Eisenschitz was born to a Jewish lawyer’s family in Vienna. His parents wanted him to study business or law, but instead he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in 1911. Inspired by the many trends in art in France, he moved to Paris in 1912 and continued his studies with George Desvallières at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière. He lived with his uncle, the art collector Otto Eisenschitz. While in Paris, Willy Eisenschitz got to know the painter Claire Bertrand, whom he married in 1914. He tried but failed to return to Austria when the First World War broke out, and was instead arrested in France and interned in a camp near Angers near the Loire. His wife Claire followed him there voluntarily, and it was in their internment camp that she gave birth to their son David and their daughter Evelyn.
