KOCH, Joseph Anton
(b. 1768, Obergibeln, d. 1839, Roma)

Waterfall near Subiaco

1813
Oil on canvas, 58 x 68
Nationalgalerie, Berlin

This typical painting by Koch was executed in 1813 in Vienna after sketches made in Italy. It is enlivened by a peasant group, probably cribbed from a Flemish source. Though it suggests a Flight into Egypt, that is no baby, it is a fruit basket.
