Koch, Joseph Anton

The Schmadribach Falls
Oil on canvas, 132 x 110 cm
Neue Pinakothek, Munich

Koch, Joseph Anton
Austrian painter (1768 - 1839)
He is best known for his landscapes.
They were directly descended from the heroic and ideal landscape of Poussin, but have a distinctive Romantic flavour, particularly in his paintings of mountains.
