August Rieger (* July 1, 1886 in Vienna; died April 22, 1941 Vienna) was an Austrian self-taught landscape painter.
Born as the son of a artistic carpenter, his parents originally intended for him to go into priesthood, entered a Catholic priest seminary, but prematurely left his study of Theology and entered financial services.
Only in the 1920s he started as a self-taught painter of landscapes. His works with views of Vienna and Viennese suburbs like Nußdorf, Grinzing, Sievering, Neuwaldegg, Hütteldorf, Klosterneuburg and Perchtoldsdorf he exhibited in the Viennese Kunstsalon.
Despite lack of academic training, he was recognized by critics as a professional artist. In 1938, he became a member of the Hagenbund.
