About Houses on the Moldau, Krumau

The artwork titled “Houses on the Moldau, Krumau” is a watercolor on paper cityscape created by Egon Schiele in 1910. Schiele was an artist associated with the Art Nouveau (Modern) movement, and this piece exemplifies that style. Originating from Czech Republic, this artwork currently resides in a private collection.

The “Houses on the Moldau, Krumau” painting displays a cluster of buildings alongside the Moldau River. Egon Schiele’s unique approach is evident in the distorted lines and the expressive use of color that give the scene a compelling and somewhat turbulent visual effect. The perspective is slightly elevated, looking down upon the houses, which are rendered in dark outlines with various shades filling the facades and roofs. The waterway appears at the forefront with rich, vibrant blue hues that provide a stark contrast to the earthy tones of the buildings. The dramatic and dynamic lines contribute to the sense of movement and intensity typical of Schiele’s work, while the color scheme helps convey the atmosphere and mood of the riverside scene.
