This painting was accomplished from the other side of the lake, from the little village of Weissenbach. Klimt zoomed the depicted area with binoculars. The graphic dissolution of the architecture and nature- the trees, the surface of the water with its reflection, the hills in the background lead to the impression of an extreme close up.
