Paris was a Mecca for artists from throughout Europe with Demetre Chiparus perhaps the master. Other notable Parisian artists included Philippe, Bouraine and Le Faguays. In Vienna, Austria Joseph Lorenzl Bruno Zach and Franz Bergman were the leading lights whilst in Berlin Ferdinand Preiss and Otto Poertzel shared a studio and produced figures of outstanding artistic merit and quality.
