Max Kislinger (1895 – 1983) was an Austrian graphic artist and watercolorist as well as a folklorist. The artist graduated from the Realschule in Linz in 1914. For economic reasons, he could not attend an art academy, which is why, in addition to his professional activity as an official of the Upper Austrian provincial government, he attended the art school of Matthias May from 1919 and evening courses with Paul Ikrath from 1922 and completed his professional training as a guest student with the ceramist Luise Spanring in Salzburg. He became internationally known for his ex-libris art, where he was honored in the yearbook for ex-libris and commercial graphics by Hans Ankwicz-Kleehoven in 1931 and by Richard Kurt Donin in 1939.
