Far view of the parish church in Perchtoldsdorf by Austrian portrait and landscape painter Rudolf Kargl (1878 Vienna - 1942 Mödling). Rudolf Kargl studied painting at the Vienna Art Academy under Franz von Matsch. From 1912 he was a member of the Austrian Artists´ Association founded by Gustav Klimt in 1906. He exhibited regularly and with great sales success in the Vienna Künstlerhaus and also in the Munich Glass Palace. The majority of his works are now in the possession of private and public collections. Kargl found his motifs for landscape paintings in villages and towns, lake, mountain and snow landscapes in Austria, northern Italy and Switzerland. Kargl also drew people, such as skiers or soldiers, as part of the impressive landscapes in which they moved.
