Bedřich Wachsmann (nee Friedrich) first made a living from lithographic works, but in 1848 he moved to Innsbruck and painted landscapes steadily. His works were well received and he also became a teacher of painting. He often worked for the church and noble families. Among his most important clients were the Archbishops of Prague Bedřich Schwarzenberg and Cardinal František Schönborn and his work was appreciated by Pope Leo XIII. The mountain landscap is one of Wachsmann's most important works, which is almost a prime example of his precise manuscript. The composition is balanced, brought to the smallest detail and at the same time represents a dramatic play of light on the road in the middle of the mountain massif.
