Artwork description by Belvedere (© - Belvedere - Belvedere)

Already at age 17 was Carl Schindler from the publisher L. T. Neumann the order to an extensive series of military scenes that should serve as a template for lithographs. Both this work, as well as the diverse, sometimes colorful uniforms that marked the appearance of Vienna in the twenties and thirties of the 19th century may have been more crucial that he intensely dedicated to the soldiers genre. Military displays were to be found in Austrian art until the second half of the 18th century in the form of military costume leaves whose design was enlivened by the addition of background figures after 1800's. Although Schindler was able to experience personally in peacetime because of his weak health, either in war events, nor to military service and despite his short life (the painter died in the age of 21 from tuberculosis), he managed the hitherto little known in Austria "Soldiers Genre" in his heyday respectively. His part in the bourgeois, partly settled in the rural milieu stories, but also march representations and fight scenes account for the soldiers as people at the center. The officer, who thanked the Sunday stroll a saluting sentries, one of the best known works of the young painter. The backdrop is the main square of the garrison town of St. Poelten, where the Infantry Regiment was stationed 49th. The painting was presented at the Academy exhibition in 1840, and even then the critics recognized the thematic excitation by the lithograph "Les honors partagés" (1838) by François-Auguste Biard. Negative but the watercolor-like thin liquid paint application was considered, which was believed to detect a lack of mastery of oil painting. The Duftigkeit in brushstroke, some of which is limited to suggestions, going to Peter Fendi back, had received at the Schindler 1837 private painting and drawing lessons and is one of the picturesque characteristic of the young artist.
