Landscape with Wall of 1930 is a particularly outstanding milestone in Josef Dobrowsky’s (1889–1964) exploration of and approximation to New Objectivity. The wall with its two black portals opening top the unknown is reminiscent of a film set and look like put together from pieces of flat cardboard. With their very reduced depiction, the surfaces appear smooth. The almost black branches of a leafless tree segment a green area in the background which brings to mind a deciduous forest. The abstracted exploration of shape and color and the radical composition do not represent any existing real-life world btu establish a parallel reality. Like in numerous work before and after, e.g. in Landscape with Aggstein Castle Ruin, Dobrowsky keeps using the menace of an approaching storm as an atmospheric element.
