Rudolf Raimund Ballabene (1890 Zurndorf - 1968 Vienna) was born into a noble family in Zurndorf, Austria, as the youngest of ten children. As he was forbidden by his father to study art, he got his degree in journalism at the University of Prague. Ballabene began a career in theater (from 1909-1914), which was interrupted by World War I. After end of the War he worked as a journalist. In 1928 he got married and henceforth dedicated himself completely to painting. In a very short time he gained a reputation as a landscape artist, painter of Prague scenes and horses and especially as a painter of floral still-lifes. In 1939, having refused to join the Nazi party in Berlin he was jailed by the Gestapo, who seized all of his paintings. Although banned by the Gestapo from painting, Ballabene continued, and in 1941, shortly before an exhibition he had been preparing for, the remainder of his paintings were seized. He and his wife were much pursued during the war. In 1945, their house and studio were destroyed in a bombardment, and they lost the rest of their possessions and many of his works, which are relatively rare in the art market for this reason. They left Prague holding only a suitcase. Ballabene later returned to Vienna, had a prolific career as a painter, and died in 1968.
