      Makart became the acknowledged leader of the artistic life of the Vienna, which in the 1870s passed through a period of feverish activity, the chief results of which are the sumptuously decorated public buildings of the Ringstrae. Makart not only practised painting, but was also an interior designer, costume designer, furniture designer, and decorator, and his paintings decorated most of the public spaces of the era. Makart paintingsengendered the term "Makartstil", or "Makart style", which completely characterized the era.
