Oskar Koller


Oskar Koller is one of the great watercolourists of the 20th-century. He received many awards and became internationally known for his light and airy paintings. Oskar Koller's great strength was his seemingly effortless handling of colour: he used blobs and splashes to great perfection, achieving a particularly lifelike delicate dynamic. Koller found inspiration and ever new impulses on his travels in Buddhist-influenced cultures. It is no coincidence that the radiance of his works is reminiscent of the works of Zen Buddhism.
