Max Weiler, who counted among the most renowned contemporary Austrian artist, dedicated his artistic creation to landscapes. While his works from the 1920s and 30s were differentiated depictions of mountain landscapes, his impressions of mature and landscapes wander off into an increasing abstraction as of the late 1950s, however, without entirely abandoning a figurative reference. The observer's perception in our case is also kept oscillating between abstract color effects and landscape associations in this typical manner. In 1960 Weiler represents his home country Austria in the Venice Biennale, from 1964 to 1981 he was teaching at the Vienna 'Akademie der Bildenden Künste'. [JS].
