The Fuschlsee with the Schafberg Mountain in the Salzkammergut

Richter transformed Koch's monumental landscapes into amore human environment and one that aimed at harmoniously securing a unity of Man and Nature. This early watercolour anticipates the Biedermeier idylls which were to colour his later works.
