Welcome to the Homepage of the artist Rudolf von Alt!


The city views of Rudolf von Alt are among the most famous pictures of Vienna and are highly popular for more than one hundred years now. Because of their richness of detail and their topografic accuracy they are not only works of art but also documents of history. Rudolf von Alt painted mainly water colors because the technique allowed him to paint light effects and athmosphere with great sensitivity. Very early and independent from the French impressionists he began to paint open air. The artist was highly respected by his contemporaries, he received several awards and a knighthood in 1892 - and because of that a "von" in between Rudolf and Alt.
