Adolf Frankl was the son of a Jewish merchant family in Pressburg in the Austro-Hungarian Empire (today Bratislava in Slovakia). Frankl initially trained as an interior decorator. Afterwards, he studied art at the School of Arts and Crafts in Pressburg with František Reichentál and Gustáv Mallý. He also worked on the side as a caricaturist and as a designer of advertising posters. Frankl set up an interior decorating business in 1937, but it was confiscated as part of the “Aryanisation” of Bratislava by the Nazis.
