SUNDAY Feature on ART of Architecture
Oskar Mulley (1891-1949) Austrian Painter of was a modern era, known for his paintings of mountain landscapes, farmsteads and houses.
Mulley attended the Städtische Gewerbeschule in Munich for one year, and then joined the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts. He initially worked as a theatrical painter.
His some of the best paintings of mountains are devoid of people and carry little traces of life. He used patches of colours of washed laundry to enliven the scene. He used bold strokes through painter’s knife rather than brushes, to build up layers of colours forming a textured surface. In later works he began to use softer and flowing colours. His style of hill architecture was copied by many of his contemporaries.
