Born in Vienna, Olga Wisinger-Florian was the talented child of the government official Franz Florian and Minne List. Her piano training from a young age was with Julius Epstein at the Vienna Conservatory, but a hand disease ended her musical career in her early thirties, so she began studying painting in Vienna under Melchior Fritsch, August Schaeffer, and Emil Jakob Schindler.  By the turn-of-the-century, this Austrian painter had achieved considerable recognition, visited in her studio even by royalty, and international awards.  She was also a supporter of the peace movement and the women's movement. She was married to pharmacist Franz Wisinger.
