Author name: Anton Doll.
(1826, Munich , Germany – 1887, Munich , Germany). Doll studied law at Munich University, but broke off his studies in 1849 to devote himself totally to painting. Just three years later, he became a member of the Munich Kunstverein. Among his favourite motifs are winter landscapes, richly decorated season paintings, e.g. harvest landscapes and landscape views with pilgrimages. In his first works the painting technique is Biedermeier-like stiff and clean, but it became much easier, looser and more pictorial in the following years.
