Abstract:

This volume illustrates the development of art in Central Europe from 1830-1860- a period which begins in the age of Biedermeier but extends well beyond it. It shows by means of a selection of representative works how art at this time developed independently and was not restricted to the historical Biedermeier era. "Is that Biedermeier?", we often ask of pictures which date from the same period but do not look typically Biedermeier. The publication concentrates on these works in particular by showing the wide range of painting in the years between 1830-1860 through portraits, landscapes and genre pictures. The main focus lies on Austrian painters like Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller, Rudolf von Alt and Friedrich von Amerling, together with artists from Northern Italy, Hungary, Bohemia and Slovenia including Giuseppe Tominz, József Borsos, Bedřich Havránek and Francesco Hayez. There are also references to the changes in style in furniture production at that time, which also demonstrated a remarkable diversity.
