Jakub Schikaneder

Murder in the House, 1890
Jakub Schikaneder (1855-1924) was a Bohemian painter known for his soft paintings of the outdoors, often lonely in mood. His paintings often feature poor and outcast figures. Other motifs favoured by Schikaneder were autumn and winter, corners and alleyways in the city of Prague and the banks of the Vltava – often in the early evening light, or cloaked in mist. A dark gothic melancholy is the main feature of most of his work, representing people, especially women in difficult conditions, poverty, mourning, death, etc.
