Live and act
Johann Rint learned to carve small nativity figures during a stay in the monastery. After Baron Mecséry had noticed him and ordered a mug with a hunting motif from him, further orders followed. Count Buquoy commissioned him to carve the furniture and doors of Rožmberk Castle .
In 1848 Johann Rint moved to Linz, where he created numerous wooden portraits, including the depiction “Entry of General Radetzky to Milan”. A scholarship enabled him to study in Munich from 1850. After returning to Linz, he created an altar for the church in Budweis and the interior for the royal crypt in Nezamyslice. Together with his son Josef Rint , he restored the Kefermarkt winged altar from 1852 . After he created an imperial cup for Empress Elisabeth from 1862–1864 , he was appointed court carver in 1865.
To commemorate the work of father and son Rint, the city of Linz named “Rintstrasse” in the Kleinmünchen district after them in 1954.
