The idyllic Dachau inspired Adolf Hölzel to make small-format oil sketches in which he captured the landscape, for example the high moor with its peculiar vegetation, the old trees, the light-colored gravel pits or the brown peat bogs. Already after the mid-eighties of the 19th century, this early creative period of Hölzel had begun, in which, under the influence of French open-air painting, he reproduced in loose brushstrokes immediate impressions of nature in his city views or landscapes. The undated painting "Dachau Landscape" is an impressive example of Adolf Hölzel's early artistic phase, which was still committed to realistic depiction. It shows the edge of a forest near Dachau. On the left side, the view is released to the back, where houses can be discovered. The muted blues, browns and greens wonderfully capture the atmosphere of a fading summer day.
