Summary

In this monographic study the life and the works of the Austrian sculptor Andreas Schroth is elaborated for the first time. He studied from 1803 at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts in the classes of Franz Anton Zauner and Johann Martin Fischer. He was awarded in 1816 by a Silver medal and from 1818 to 1820 he was a Stipendiate. During his Prague stay in 1820–21 the bust of Count Joseph Colloredo was made. From 1823 to 1835 on behalf of Archbishop Sándor Rudnay he worked in Esztergom, and has contributed mainly decorative sculptures to the Neo-Classic Cathedral in construction. In 1823–24 he created the two statues of Genii in the entrance of the crypt, and between 1831–36 he made eight reliefs with the representations of the feasts of the Virgin for the Esztergom Church of St. Anne. In 1829 he made drawings illustrating the local almanach Urania, as well as the marble bust of Marshall Joseph Colloredo for the Vienna Arsenal on behalf of Emperor Francis I. In the years between 1830 and 1835 he was working for the Benedictine Abbey of Pannonhalma. Only fragments are preserved of the big lead relief decorating the West facade of the Abbey Church. After his return to Vienna he worked in 1838 in Esztergom on the Station reliefs of the Calvary and also for the Count Anton Keglevich in North Hungary. He transformed the facade of the Bohemian Church in Boskovice in 1844, and the relief of the Dead Christ between angels for the Abbey Church in Melk was made in the same year.
