About this Item

English Text. München, 2013; hardback, pp. 128, 120 b/w and col. ill., cm 19x24. This year marks the 170th anniversary of Emil Jakob Schindler's birth and the 120th anniversary of his death. His works of "atmospheric Impressionism" illustrate the change from the opulent art of early 19th century Vienna to a new understanding of nature. Rather than realistic documentations, his landscapes are idealised and poetic interpretations. Schindler's works feature romantic themes, lonely chapels and couples in forests, but also Symbolist paintings such as Pax (1891), inspired by Böcklin's 1880 Isle of the Dead. His early Symbolist approach from the 1870s already differed in interpretation from that of his teacher Albert Zimmermann. Schindler looked for the simple landscape, the poetic moment, the special atmosphere of the mundane, whether in a vegetable garden, or in the floodplains of the Danube. These works show the influence of the World Exhibition, the Barbizon school, and the Viennese tradition. Man is not absent from Schindler's works. Steamboats and water mills and other man-made objects are shown to exist in harmony with nature. Bookseller Inventory # 2597875

About this title


Viennese painter Emil Jakob Schindler (1842–92) is known for his idealized, poetic landscapes, “atmospheric Impressionist” paintings that represent a key moment in the shift from the opulence of Viennese art of the earlier part of the nineteenth century towards a new understanding of nature. Schindler’s landscapes are influenced by romanticism, with their lonely chapels and couples walking in deep forests, but they also show the influence of the symbolist movement, the World Exhibition, and the Barbizon school—in addition to the longer Viennese tradition. Schindler’s landscapes are of particular interest in part because he doesn’t represent nature as separate from humanity—rather, by presenting not only people but water mills, steamboats, and other manmade objects, he suggests a fundamental harmony between humans and the natural world.

This book reproduces more than one hundred of Schindler’s paintings, accompanied by essays exploring his career, the artistic scene of his time, and his influence.
