Essay
The view of the inner court was made at Hartmannsberg Castle. Between 1909 and 1914 Leo Putz was active there and made some of his most renowned works, however, usually with young women easily wandering about in nature as figurative staffage. Sole studies of nature from this period are rare. The artist's characteristic broad stroke of the brush is also present in this work, which gains its special picturesque atmosphere from the light contrasts that Leo Putz combines in sophisticated color values, creating an overall harmonious composition. The soft light reflections on the wall add decisive impulse to the composition's atmosphere, delivering proof of his poise in handling relevant artistic means. Following a tradition in painting that roots in the late 19th century, Leo Putz created works in a late impressionist splendor that existed in realms far from the era's progressive tendencies.
