Emil Barbarini (1855-1930)
Austrian landscape painter, son of the artist Franz Barbarini (Franz Barbarini, 1804 - 1873), who specialized in Alpine landscapes. He studied from his father, together with his brother Gustav, who also became a landscape painter. Apart from landscapes he painted market scenes of Vienna, Krems and other Austrian as well as foreign towns. Similar to the French, Emil typically painted the same motifs at different times of the day thus creating variations featuring different shades of light. In his work, harmony dominates over contrast.
