Unfortunately not on display at the moment
After leaving the Wiener Werkstätte in 1907, Koloman Moser (1868–1918) focused once more on painting, with landscapes among his preferred themes. Between 1907 and 1916 he executed numerous landscape paintings on the Semmering, where the artist liked to stay with his family. These include View of Rax Mountain and Rainy Day. The painting Villa Schüler on the Semmering shows the villa built by Josef Daum in 1881/82 at the foot of Pinienkogel mountain for Friedrich Julius Schüler, the CEO of the Südbahngesellschaft, as a branch of the Südbahnhotel. The bold use of contrasting colors is testament to Moser’s in-depth exploration of avant-garde color and perception theories.
