HERMAN BAHR -- 1863-1934
- Essayist whose work is included in The Vienna Coffeehouse
Wits 1890 - 1938 See especially pages 41-47 for a biographical sketch.
In a footnote on page 82, Segel says of him: "the moving spirit of the "Young Vienna"
circle." Two of his essays, "The Overcoming of Naturalism" and "Red Trees" are included
in this volume.
- In the same work as above, The Vienna Coffeehouse
Wits 1890 - 1938 See 120-122 for the interesting story of
how Herman Bahr led a protest to support Gustav Klimt when the city of Vienna backed down
on mounting his three paintings, Philosophy, Jurisprudence and Medicine, which had been
commissioned for the university building. The paintings were never mounted and later lost
in a fire.
