Yes all right, I know this scene is not a beergarden (Biergarten), just a garden idyll. But recently it has led me to some great works of art that are related to this theme by contemporary artists (most were born approximately 1865-1875) in the time the subject of my recent postings, Hélène Maß, created this charming woodblock print.
At least I think she must have been acquainted with many of the artists and their works shown in this posting. Although it is a totally different medium Maß’ woodblock prints rival with the paintings in oil by her colleagues. The use of light, shade and colour by Maß are very reminiscent of the paintings and style of Max Uth (1863-1914) (above) maybe there’s an unknown connection somewhere. I’ll do a posting on this charming painter soon.
I just couldn’t resist creating a posting with this theme because I couldn’t find anything similar, discovering many new to me painters: very rewarding indeed.

There are and were many famous beer gardens (guesthouse, brasserie) in Berlin, around the Tiergarten, the famous central park with it’s equally famous Zoo and of course the Prater Biergarten and I cannot imagine this particular charming scene chosen so often but by the Berlin (post-)impressionist artists.
