Franz von Bayros was an Austrian commercial artist, illustrator, and painter best known for his controversial “Tales at the Dressing Table” portfolio. Von Bayros belonged to the Decadent movement in art, often relying on erotic themes and phantasmagoric imagery.
Von Bayros was born in Zagreb, in present-day Croatia. At the age of
17, he passed the entrance exam for the Vienna Academy with Eduard von Engerth. Von Bayros mixed in elegant society and soon belonged to the circle of friends of Johann Strauss II, whose stepdaughter Alice he
married in 1896. The next year, von Bayros moved to Munich. In 1904,
von Bayros gave his first exhibition in Munich, which was a great
success. From 1904 until 1908, von Bayros traveled to Paris and Italy
for his studies. Returning to Vienna, he felt himself a stranger. The
outbreak of the First World War was yet another setback for von
Bayros. The artist died at Vienna, from a cerebral hemorrhage.
