Mädchen vor dem Lottogewölbe by Peter Fendi, 1829 Vienna, the Belvedere
The title means something like “girl in front of the lottery vault”.
A lady in a white dress and shawl before a Viennese landscape (19th century). Workshop of Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (Austrian, Romantic, 1793–1865). Oil on canvas.
Waldmüller was a representative Biedermeier painter. The Biedermeier period in art was a transition between Neoclassicism and Romanticism as it was interpreted by the bourgeoisie. The rising middle class’s cultural interests in books, writing, dance, and poetry readings were subject matter for Biedermeier painting, which was either genre or historical and most often sentimentally treated.
