The late work of the introspective artist Leopold Birstinger, who strives for authenticity, has undergone a long development, but has consolidated from the 1960s onwards, independent of national and international developments, with simple pictorial means and a light color scheme influenced by the Fauves. His landscape depictions mostly of the Weinviertel and Waldviertel can, in connection with the hard strokes of fate in Birstinger's life, be interpreted as melancholy symbols of longing for paradise.
