Austrian painter Wilhelm List was born in Vienna in 1864. He studied there as well as in Munich and Paris, learning from artists such as Christian Griepenkerl (1839–1912)and William Bouguereau (1825–1903). List co-founded the Vienna Secession with renowned artist Gustav Klimt (1862–1918), exhibiting at the very first Viennese Secession in March 1897. The Secessionists strove to break free of the constraints of the late nineteenth century academic art establishment. List’s artwork was a mixture of portraits, landscapes and genre paintings, often with mythological subjects. Magnolia is among List’s most well-known works. Its intricate depiction of a beautiful tree in bloom, with a background of still waters has a spiritual quality that evokes a sense of peace.
