Julius Rollmann was one of the greatest talents of German landscape painting. As a result of his early death at the age of only 38 years, he has left a very small but very qualitative oeuvre.
Stylistically, he is under the dominant influence of the Schirmer school, his paintings have similarities with L.H. Becker.
The Düsseldorf Art Museum has 47 Rollmann landscape studies of men who were initially held by the Art Academy and served as templates for young painters. In these studies, the ease of light-air and atmosphere are turned into oil paintings.
