Oil on canvas.

LITERATURE: Cf. Münchner Maler im 19./20. Jahrhundert, published by Horst Ludwig, Munich 1994, vol. 6, p. 219, illu. 299 (version from 1932).

Carl Reiser repeated the view of the Kochelberg in an almost identical version in 1932, the painting is in possession of the Lenbachhaus in Munich today. This later version shows a fashionably dressed skier at the foot of the hill. Just as many other artists did in the 1920s, Reiser integrated motifs of skiers, a sport that had just become very popular, into his landscapes.
