Abstract:

"During the 19th century, Austrian painters were drawn to faraway countries for their inspiration. Initially, they documented scenes and motifs. Later, the visual allure of foreign places, the transformation of landscapes and buildings by sunlight, the depiction of heat and the exotic surroundings also began to find expression in their paintings and drawings. One of the most important Austrian painters to visit the Orient was Leopold Carl Müller, who produced many market scenes and figures over the course of nine winters in Egypt. Other Austrian painters, such as Alois Schonn, Alphons Mielich and Bernhard Fiedler, also travelled to the Orient, and Rudolf Swoboda and Hermann von Königsbrunn even reached India and Ceylon. August von Pettenkofen, Otto von Thoren and Johann Gualbert Raffalt looked for inspiration closer to home, in neighboring Hungary. This publication brings together the impressions of these artists of Hungary, the Balkan, Greece and Constantinople, Egypt and the Holy Land, as well as India, Ceylon and the Indian Ocean."--Publisher's website.
