An early work by George Eisler (20th April 1928-15th january 1998) was an Austrian painter from the School of Oscar Kokoschka. His father Hanns Eisler was a composer and his mother Charlotte Eisler, née Demant a well-known singer and music teacher. He lived in England from 1936 -1946. Georg attended Manchester Central High School for Boys and later became a student at the Stockport School of Art and Manchester Academy. He was introduced to Oskar Kokoschka in London, who agreed to give him lessons. Georg in 1968 was elected President of the Vienna Secession.
His work is in collections such as the Portrait Gallery London, the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. In 2003, the Leica Company celebrated his lifelong friendship with Henri Cartier-Bresson by presenting a joint show of their work in Vienna. The Georg Eisler Medal is awarded to the outstanding young artist in Austria annually.
