Hugo Gerhard Ströhl
Hugo Gerhard Ströhl (1851-1919) was an Austrian heraldist. Ströhl was born in Wels in Upper-Austria. As a talented painter he studied at the School for Applied Arts in Vienna. After graduation he worked as a teacher of painting and drawing, but he also founded his own small atelier and printing office.
His main work was to design (heraldic) books and (advertising) stamps. His heraldic drawings, especially of his main books, the Austrian-Hungarian and the Imperial German rolls of arms, are among the best heraldic drawings ever published.
Although not his first work on heraldry, he became famous with the publication in 1890 of the Roll of Arms of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, an overview of the arms of all the territories (and claims) of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.
His large volume "Heraldische Atlas" is still considered a standard work in German heraldic literature.
