Rather than illustrating grand literature or personal fantasies, Josef Danhauser captures normal, everyday scenes.
Josef Danhauser, Two Dancing Girls (pencil drawing, ca. 1835)
Josef Danhauser, Amor and Psyche (pencil drawing, ca. 1838)
In Room 306, the pencil drawing ’Two Dancing Girls’ by Josef Danhauser (1805–1845) resolves the tension in Markus Vallazza’s works; in Room 307, ’Amor and Psyche’ accompanies the personal works by Franz Mölk. Danhauser was a leading exponent of Viennese Biedermeier painting. His work centres on scenes from Austrian history, and genre pictures populated by numerous bourgeois figures.
