His oeuvre comprises a war memorial in the University of Vienna as well as neoclassical sculptures, including a fountain in the garden of Franz Schubert's birthplace and the "Monument to Youth" in front of the Temple of Theseus in Vienna (inofficially regarded as the city's most-photographed statue).
