The artworks created by members of the Alt family number among the masterpieces of Austrian watercolor painting. Rooted in Biedermeier-era Vienna, their output proceeded to follow the grand arc of cultural history through to the dawn of modernism. They revolve around themes such as architecture and landscape, urban life and natural beauty.

This family of painters included Jakob Alt (1789–1872) and his sons Rudolf (1812–1905) and Franz (1821–1914). Jakob Alt left his home city of Frankfurt am Main to settle in Vienna in 1810. He supported his family by producing series of printed graphics showing townscapes and landscapes. Rudolf Alt—who was ennobled at an advanced age and has therefore been known as Rudolf von Alt since 1897—and his younger brother Franz learned the art of watercolor from their father. They eventually began collaborating as equal partners.
