Ferdinand Freiherr Von Reznicek was an Austrian painter, illustrator and caricaturist. He initially followed his father's footsteps in the army, becoming a cavalry officer, before turning to an artistic profession. He set up his own art studio with Paul Hoecher in 1888. He worked with industrial designers and contributed to satirical magazines like Jugend, Simplicissimus and Fliegende Blätter. Coming from a noble Austrian family of Czech origins, he was the half-brother of composer Emil Nikolaus Von Reznicek.

For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
