Mathias and Anna Sophie Gasteiger's House and Garden
The sculptor Mathias Gasteiger (1871-1934) was one of the important Munich artists active in the period around 1900. He was married to Anna Sophie Gasteiger (1877-1954), who was best known for her paintings of flowers. The home they built by the Ammersee from 1902 to 1913 with its landscape park, house and outhouses is a unique example of the Munich Art Nouveau style. The museum in the rooms where they lived still has the original Art Nouveau furnishings, together with historic photos, a selection of sculptures by Mathias Gasteiger and a collection of paintings by Anna Sophie Gasteiger.
The garden was primarily laid out by Anna Sophie, who used the formal flower garden running from west to east near the villa as the inspiration for her still-life paintings of flowers. Many of these, painted against the light, were produced in the atelier by the east gable window, which has a view of the Ammersee.
Mathias Gasteiger also used the landscape park as an open-air extension of his atelier, exhibiting his sculptures there and decorating essential features such as the entrance gate and the bridges over the Kittenbach which flows through the grounds. The entrance on the Eduard-Thöny-Strasse is particularly elaborate, with groups of deer in cast stone flanking the two pillars on either side of the wooden gates; the same sculptures can be found on the Diana Fountain on Kufsteiner Platz in Munich.
