Karl Raupp visited the Chiemsee with the island Fraueninsel for the first time in 1869. Having discovered the region, its landscape and people the artist felt so strongly inspired that he created an oeuvre that earned him the sobriquet "Chiemsee-Raupp". In his paintings Raupp combines close observation of nature, especially the quickly changing weather condition with lovely genre pictures of fishermen, hunter, peasant families or young couples. Raupp executed his pictures both in his studio in Munich and in front of nature. The latter compositions are characterized by a swifter brushstroke. [FS]
