Ludwig Kasper (1893-1945) was an Austrian sculptor.


Born in Gurten, Austria, on May 2, 1893, Ludwig Kasper was the son of a farmer. He received artistic training as a sculptor in Hallstatt (Tyrol), then with Hermann Hahn in Munich, and, with the help of scholarships, in Greece and in Rome.

He worked in Berna (Silesia), in Paris, and in Berlin. This last period of creation was the most fertile for him.

In 1930, he married the artist Ottilie Wolf.

Between 1943 and 1944, he taught sculpture at the School of Art of Braunschweig. The bombardment of that city led him to return to Austria. He died on August 28, 1945, in Braunau from a kidney ailment.

His works were exhibited during Documenta 1 in 1955, which was the first in the series of renowned documenta exhibitions in Kassel.
