Schlob Kammer On The Attersee is part of an array of landscape paintings of the artist, including Attersee, Birch Forest, Country House on Attersee, and an array of other works.

A significant one from the collection that resembles Klimt's Schlob Kammer On The Attersee, is Church in Uterach on Attersee. Klimt's father in law had assisted the artist in his endeavour by providing a telescope for the artist to find the perfect view for his painting. Klimt had used this telescope to paint the view on the other side of Lake Attersee, similarly to Schlob Kammer On The Attersee.

Gustav Klimt had spent his warm summers in the countryside, getting away from the noise and style of Vienna, Austria. Accompanied by his wife, Klimt set out to a small cabin on Lake Attersee where the large body of water and beautiful scenery seized his work.

The artist began his day everyday at 6AM, strolling through the deep forests, calm meadows and cold water; finding inspiration for his complex oil on canvas masterpieces. However, Klimt continued towards a more impressionist approach that used bright colours and abstract styles to influence his landscape work.

The painting of Schlob Kammer On The Attersee seems to be painted on the opposite side of the lake, through the use of a telescope. The interesting element to witness within the painting is that it differs from Klimt's other landscape paintings. The piece has a realism approach to the work, using a large array of meticulous detail rather than abstract mosaic. The painting pays tribute to Klimt's original realism style in which the artist received his artist education.

The piece is a superb landscape example of Gustav Klimt's Art Nouveau style, using a higher level of detail to illustrate the work. Through the canvas the viewer is able to witness the focal point of the work through the large yellow house. The colour scheme for the building seems to be a supply of yellow, raging from shades of mustard to pale yellows. The house holds a 19th century style, with large windows that fill the exterior. The house bends upwards near the middle, displaying what seems to be a clock.

Klimt surrounds the classic yellow home is vegetation throughout the canvas. Tall trees fill the background of the painting, while small-cultivated trees are arranged near the front of the house. The luscious greenery displays the open feel of the region and natural environment the artist was drawn to. To the right of the house, a garden of rich flowers fills the scene in shades of red and white. The blossoms seem to resemble roses; one of the artist's favourite flowers that he often painted through his work, such as within Rose Bushes Under Trees.

The masterful element to the piece is the glimpse of Lake Attersee located beneath the house. As the artist had used an Art Nouveau style that illustrates a greater multitude of detail than his impressionist landscape, the artist had reflected the details of the house on the shore.

The surface of the water is strategically blended to illustrate the texture of the shores, while mirroring the details of the house.

The artist illustrate the green scrubs, red glimpse of roses, mustard coloured house and trees while showcasing the light breeze that flows through the water. The exquisite technique to reflect an object against the surface of a body of water while still illustrating its detail is a masterful objective to complete.
