Hans Makart

The egregore of the city of Vienna. [Actress Charlotte Wolter as Messalina]

Bacchic ramble [Der Triumph der Ariadne]


Hortensio hat gesagt…

Slightly kitschy and pompous Viennese hothouse style.

v. Braun. hat gesagt…

I agree with that assessment. I like it. I saw some photographs of Makart's atelier at the recent big exhibition of his works in the Belvedere [they’re also in the catalogue]: the interior of it was absolutely –and excellently- over-stuffed crazy 19th century-madness!
