Anton Vorauer was an art professor at the Vienna Fine Art Academy from the late 1920s until the outbreak of World War II. While painting at the Parthenon in Athens, he was involuntarily drafted as a Greek translator for the German Army. After the war, he and his wife emigrated to the United States. He became a sought after portrait artist, earning many lucrative commissions from New York to Georgia to North Carolina.
