Biography  
Josef Thoma, the Younger


Josef Thoma the Younger was an Austrian painter best known for his landscapes of rural Austria.  Painted in the style of Romantic artist such as Eugène Delacroix and Caspar David Friedrich, his work often processed a mystical quality, created by manipulating light and natural settings.  For example, in his work Berglandschaft, which depicts a wooden cabin hidden between the mountain peak, the artist uses a dark, muted color palette, adding the air of mystery.  Also influenced by the European interest in so-called “Orientalism,” he painted foreign landscapes of the Far East, as seen in his painting Garden in Constantinople.

Born in 1828 in Austria, Thoma died in 1899 in Austria.
