While Otto Ritschl's early paintings are still alternately influenced by the then tendencies of Expressionism, Cubism and Surrealism, which he overcomes in a progressive process since the late 1940s. In the 1950s he found his personal abstract style of painting, which is based on stricter geometric-constructivist forms. The 1958 "Composition 58/13" stands at the direct transition between his earlier, still clearly structured geometric formations and his subsequent "Meditation Paintings", which were created from about 1960 onwards. Accordingly, the color palette already moves slightly in the direction of monochrome, and the austerity of the stereometric color fields is also neglected in favor of rounded, cloudy formal inventions.
