Original artwork description by Belvedere website (© - by Belvedere - Belvedere)

The oil painting The stubborn donkey Anton Romako was probably in 1856 during a trip to Spain by the artist and is considered the earliest surviving genre painting in his oeuvre. The contrast, saturated colors of humorous scene corresponds to the intense light of the South. The loose and sketchy brushwork acting like about works by Francisco de Goya or El Greco remember and is probably due Romako encounter with original works of Spanish painting tradition. 1860 gained Romako in Rome primarily oriented on the art market landscape views, genre paintings and portraits large financial and social recognition. After a failed marriage to the artist in 1875 returned to Vienna, where his style but not met the prevailing taste. With his increasingly bizarre and excessive design language and the emphasis on psychological moments he took elements of early expressionism anticipated. lonely in his later years and impoverished, was Romako an outsider among the historicist painters that should be rediscovered by future generations as an important reference point.
