artist: Carl Rudolf Huber (1839-1896)
engraved by:
The Austian painter and lithographer Carl Huber was born in Schleinz (Austria)on 15. 8. 1839, and died 28. 8. 1896 in Vienna. Carl Rudolf started to tudypainting from the age of 11. Later he made several trips to the Orient. The first one he did was to Egypt in 1857 and another one also to Egypt together with Leopold C. Müller in 1875. The city of Cairo they visited had already a considerable number of European-style hotels and guesthouses around 1870. The development in Egypt became incredibly rapid from then on and the style of dance also changed as an effect of European influence. Huber was assigned a chair on the Akademie der bildende Künste in 1880. Huber - as did Müller also - painted more poetical, realistic and of high quality. Strangely enough is the fact that Huber and Müller both had a stickdancer as central theme. Probably the woman immitating
the Tahtib, the stickdance done by the men using long (4') rotan sticks and dancing solo or in a mock fight.
