Adolf Hirémy-Hirschl (1860–1933) was a Hungarian Jewish artist known for historical and mythological painting, particularly of subjects pertaining to ancient Rome. He received a scholarship to attend the Akademie der bildenden Künste in 1878. His time in Rome was a major influence on his choice of subject matter. After returning to Vienna, he produced the acclaimed large-scale canvas The Plague in Rome (1884), a work that is now lost. He enjoyed a successful career with numerous commissions and high praise for his historical and allegorical works, culminating in the Imperial Prize in 1891. During the rise of Klimt and the Vienna Secession movement, he began using the name Adolf Hirémy and moved to Rome, where he spent the last thirty-five years of his life as an eminent member of the expatriate art community.
