“Painter’s Steep”

Around the year of 1820, famous Biedermeier landscapists discovered the Salzkammergut and therefore also the Wolfgangsee. One of their most famous representatives was Ferdinand Georg
Waldmüller, who left a number of beautiful paintings of this region. Painters often preferred to paint St Wolfgang and the lake from the Kalvarienberg side, which is why this route was soon to be known as Malersteig (“Painter’s Steep”).
 
The so-called Zinkenbach Painters’ Colony was particularly distinctive of the time between 1927 and 1938. Important Austrian artists around the painter Ferdinand Kitt spent the summer in Zinkenbach, where they rested and had fun, but also created important works in this relaxed atmosphere.
 
“I can’t say more about the Wolfgangsee other than that it is beautiful; it is the richest case for studying the beauty in landscape painting”, said a travel writer at the beginning of the 19th century.
