About Die Bergmaher

“Die Bergmaher” is an Oil on Canvas painting by Albin Egger-Lienz, an Austrian painter.  It was painted in 1907, and has dimensions of 149.7 x 94.3 cm.  The painting depicts mowers in the mountains, with primarily green and blue tones, and was painted in the Expressionist style.

“Die Bergmaher” is characterized by its expressionist qualities, with a focus on capturing the essence of the subject matter rather than adhering strictly to realism. It depicts mowers in the mountains, a theme that resonates with the artist’s Tyrolean roots and his interest in the lives of peasants and rural workers.

Albin Egger-Lienz was born on January 29, 1868, and who passed away on November 4, 1926, is renowned for his rustic genre and historical paintings.  Egger-Lienz’s work often portrayed strong, monumental figures and made use of a nearly monochromatic palette dominated by earth tones. His style evolved under various influences, including the French painter Jean-Francois Millet and Swiss artist Ferdinand Hodler, yet he developed a unique formal language marked by expressiveness and a sense of grandeur.
