Arthur Schnitzler (May 15, 1862 - October 21, 1931), the son of a Jewish physician, took a medical degree and practiced medicine for much of his life, interesting himself particularly in psychiatry. He made his name as a playwright and novelist, known for his psychological dramas that dissect turn-of-the-century Viennese bourgeois life.
The Berlin-born photographer Arthur Benda worked in the photo studio Madame d'Ora in Vienna, which was the most acclaimed portrait-studio in fin de siècle Vienna.
