Monument to Karl Lueger (1844-1910).
20th c Austrian Social Realist Sculpture
(1879 - 1968)
Vienna. Karl Lueger Square. Austria.
Lueger was the Mayor of Vienna from 1897-1910 and did many good things for the city. However he was a right-wing politician who advocated racist policies against all non-German minorities in Austri-Hungary and he served as an inspiration for the Nazis. As a result there is some controversy about his monuments.
