Work within the rustic style had been in excessive demand on the Viennese artwork market through the Biedermeier interval. Even so, no one needed to see the laborious and tough lifetime of the agricultural inhabitants depicted on the partitions of middle-class Viennese properties, however quite a vibrant, folkloric model thereof, for which purpose Waldmüller focused on scenes that didn’t need to do with work within the fields.
The topics he selected extolled the ethical virtues of rural life, or the thrill of household life.
His style work shied away from idealisation or pretentiousness and though he would usually add historic and non secular parts to his depictions he was by no means afraid to spotlight social criticism within the work. By way of his depictions of life within the countryside his work extolled the advantage of rural life and on the similar time highlighting the positivity of household life. Such joyousness could be seen in his 1857 portray, Corpus Christi Morning. Life for the peasants might not all laughing and dancing however for that second in time life couldn’t be higher. It was a little bit of a consolation time.
