Gurschner studied at the School of Applied arts in Vienna, and participated in the Vienna Secession in 1898. A few years later became part of the Hagenbund, a group of Austrian artists. Most of his work-functional objects such as ashtrays, electric lamps, door knockers, and doorknobs -are either Art Nouveau or Wiener Werkstatte in spirit.

We have one object that Gustav Gurschner has been involved with.
