Leo Putz, 18 June 1869 – 21 July 1940, Tyrolean painter.

His work encompasses Art Nouveau, Impressionism and the beginnings of Expressionism. Figures, nudes and landscapes are his predominant subjects.

He became an opponent of National Socialism and his art was labelled "degenerate". Beginning in 1936, he was repeatedly interrogated by the Gestapo and was forced to flee back to his native region, the South Tyrol. In 1937, he was officially banned from working in Germany.

For the remainder of his life, he concentrated on painting castles, villages and benign landscapes.

He died in 1940, following an operation. News of his death was suppressed in Italy and Germany and he was quietly interred in Gauting,
Germany.
