Many of the works painted by Walter Langhammer were done from memory. These were remembered landscapes from Europe, of, especially, the Alpine ranges depicting sleeping villages nestling in the mountains. Noted art curator, critic and historian Ranjit Hoskote commented that while Langhammer’s paintings were ‘imbued with nostalgia for a lost Europe, they are also vivid with an awareness of the light of his adopted country’. An Austrian émigré, it is to Langhammer’s credit that many of the then-aspiring Indian artists got noticed for their unique artistic abilities.
