|Description||Very decorative view of Bad Gastein with its impressive waterfall. It is one of the most well known waterfalls in Austria. Printed after the painting of Emil Ludwig Löhr (1809-1876 in München) , a very famous German landscape painter. Emil Ludwig Löhr (1809-1876 in Munich) was a German landscape painter. He was the son of the banker August Löhr, who moved to Vienna in 1818. Here L. Löhr received his artistic training under Leopold Kupelwieser. He went to Rome for further studies and, under the influence of Joseph Anton Koch, turned to landscape painting. Löhr returned to Germany from Italy in 1840 because of malaria. He moved to Munich with his family. For several years in the summer, because of his illness, he went to Bad Gastein for relief, where he painted many landscapes.|
|In the 19th century the waters of Bad Gastein became a fashionable resort, visited by European monarchs as well as the rich and famous. Some notable guests of the past included Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Sisi) and the German Emperor Wilhelm I with his chancellor Otto von Bismarck as well as Subhas Chandra Bose, a leading Indian nationalist, Tsar Ferdinand I of Bulgaria, King Faisal I of Iraq, King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia and Iran's last king Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, industrialists like Wilhelm von Opel and artists like Heinrich Mann, Robert Stolz and W. Somerset Maugham. On 14 August 1865 Bismarck had signed the Gastein Convention with Austria concerning the joint administration of the provinces of Schleswig and Holstein after the Second Schleswig War. The composer Franz Schubert was once believed to have sketched a Gmunden-Gastein Symphony during his stay in August and September 1825.|
