Koloman Moser

The Great Masters of Art

Herbert Beck

Miniatures
For more than thirty years the Tegernsee artist Herbert Beck (1920–2010) created numerous small watercolours which he himself called his miniatures. They arose from scraps of paper on which the painter, while working, wiped off his dripping paintbrush. Out of these random colour combinations Herbert Beck created small compositions in their own right, depicting atmospheric landscapes or expressive figures.
