GRAVE LOCATION Graz, Steiermark: St. Leonhard-Friedhof (120-040-021)

Daniel Pauluzzi's father died early and his family was poor. With the help of Baron Egkh he was able to attend the Landeskunstschule. When he was fifteen years old he became a pupil of Jakob Gschiel. Two years later he went to Augsburg to work as a lithographer. After visiting Brussels, Antwerp and Leipzig he entered the Kunstschule in Nuremberg, where Karl Jäger was his teacher. From 1888 he studied at the Academy of Arts in Munich.

He improved his painting skills during his travels in Europe and he settled in Graz as an independent artist. There he worked for many years in his studio in the St. Leonhard neighbourhood. He also taught art at the Kunstgewerbeschule and at the Steirische Landeskunstschule. In 1941 he joined the NSDAP but in 1945 he was classified as 'minderbelasted' (less polluted), although he was judged as a ´supporter and profiteer of the regime´.
