Rudolf von Alt

14 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #295
Romantic   •   Rudolf von Alt @ Wikipedia

Rudolf von Alt was born the son of a painter and discovered early the love for art. With the colouration of lithographs by Jakob Alt, Rudolf began his artistic education, which he later continued at the Vienna Academy. The art was dominated by the Romantic, landscapes in soft colors and with a varied play of light were created. Rudolf concentrated on his native Austria, working closely with his father, who often took him on trips.

Von Alt developed into one of the most important landscape and architectural painters of the 19th century. His views are filled with vitality and large monuments are entrenched in everyday scenes. His depiction of the Vienna Hofburg shows a lively square and creates the appearance of a snapshot. His view of St. Stephen's Cathedral shows an impressive play of light and shadow. Rudolf's work is so detailed that the time of day becomes clear on a sunny day. Rudolf von Alt shows in his works elements that are considered to be forerunners of impressionism.

Rudolf von Alt undertook trips to the eastern part of the monarchy. The impressions he collected in Prague and the rural regions, he liked to process in so-called peep-box pictures. In almost perfect perspective, the images could be viewed in appropriate devices. At fairs, these views were a big attraction. © Meisterdrucke
