The magnificent flower and fruit bouquets that have arisen in the early 19th century in the imperial city Vienna, can not be described as a Viennese invention. It is rather a question of picking up a run in the Dutch painting of the 17th and 18th centuries in top form image type. The Viennese artist knew many of these works from the collections of the Austrian nobility, the Academy Gallery and the Imperial Picture Gallery. Of these magnificent arrangements finally the thoughtlessness was taken in the selection of flowers and fruits, which took place mostly after color and formal criteria, but rarely reflect reality because many of the united in the painting plant never find each other in reality as they different times bloom. Crucial to this visual and colored "Fireworks" the taste of the buyer, as well as its tendency to decorative was. As the basis for an optimal combination therefore study leaves were used by flowers that were present both in the flower painting school of the Imperial Academy of Fine Arts as well as in the various greenhouses. In conjunction with ornate vases, goblets or small sculptures, behind catch of landscape views or important paintings of the past, these representations evolved eventually imaginative structures that met the needs of the customer for representation. They were regarded as jewels, as an ornament of the salon. The Viennese humor in these paintings is reflected in the rich colors and an almost tactile, sensuous presence of the subject. A remarkable feature of the still lifes by Josef Lauer is also the inclusion of birds and insects in his pictures. [Grabner 2010]
