Born in southern Germany, Philipp Jakob Straub is one of the most important representatives of 18th century Austrian Baroque sculpture. For the first time, his extensive oeuvre is brought together here from an international perspective and subjected to an in-depth analysis. Some previous attributions to the artist have now been retracted, making his work appear more homogeneous. However, previously unknown works have also been reassigned to him, resulting in a considerable catalog of works that clearly illustrates the artist's stylistic genesis. This enables a fresh look at his oeuvre and the diverse stylistic influences of his new hometown of Graz. His important position within Austrian Baroque sculpture is also redefined.

  • First completely stylistically analyzed, international catalog of works by Philipp Jakob Straub
  • Investigation of the influences from the Cisalpine region on Graz Baroque sculpture
  • Distinction from the work of the other Straub brothers and contemporaries
Christina Pichler, lecturer in art history, University of Graz. Focus: Baroque sculpture in Austria, especially Styria
