The artist , who trained with his father, traveled to Italy, notably to Venice where he copied the great masters. If he painted religious works still preserved in the churches of the Tyrol, the most original part of his work are his scenes of turqueries. 

A turquerie is a work of art from the orientalist fashion developed in Western Europe during the 16th and 18th centuries, which depicts or imitates various aspects of Turkish art and culture.
Many Western European countries developed a fascination with the exotic and still relatively unknown culture of Turkey, which was the centre of the Ottoman Empire.
European art often reflected this trend: music, painting, architecture and crafts were inspired by Turkish and Ottoman styles. Paintings in particular depicted the Ottomans in bright colours and strong contrasts, suggesting their exotic nature.
