Marmots in front of the Augstenberg, oil on canvas

Creation year


Besides animal paintings, Fritz also liked to paint flowers as well as mountain landscapes. This picture of two marmots in front of the Augstenberg near Malbun in the Principality of Lichtenstein combines the three motifs. The purple color of the monkshood is also found in the shadowy slopes of the mountains and on the bellies of the marmots. It is quite possible that this play of light and colors inspired the artist to create this work.
