Annotation

Johannes Benk made in 1904 a stone statue of Franz Joseph for the Kommandogebäude Theodor Körner in the 14th district of Vienna. Benk's student Josef Tuch made in 1908 a copy in bronze for the city park of Wiener Neustadt, were it was removed in 1938. It survived World War II and was placed in 1957 in the Burggarten.
