  • Marie Egner

    (Radkersburg 1850–1940 Vienna)

Unfortunately not on display at the moment
In the watercolor Moor in Salzburg, Marie Egner (1850–1940) entirely relies on the intrinsic impact of suggestive motifs and their specific color and light effects. Two thirds of the vertical-format work are taken up by the mighty sky with colorfully differentiated towering clouds. In the foreground, Egner starts out from light reflections on water and guides the viewer’s gaze across horizontal color stripes that suggest the shimmering green moor and the intensely blue silhouette of the mountains upward toward the horizon. Egner shows the impression of the moment and at the same time her preference for the color-sensitive representation of subjective sensations. The atmospheric impressionist compellingly demonstrates the wet-on-wet watercolor technique, which she had become acquainted with during her stay in England in 1887/88.
