From this point on, Franz Bischoff's eye never returned to the miniscule images he captured on ceramics, but instead would look to the remarkable scenery of the California landscape. Bischoff was known for taking smaller board panels out into the Arroyo Seco region of his home, where he would compose rapid and free sketches that he relied on in the studio for his larger, formal composition. Franz A. Bischoff would traditionally display these sketches along with the completed painting.
The technique of Franz Bischoff (also known as F. A Bischoff and Franz A. Bischoff) was inspired by Impressionism, but also placed a great deal of emphasis on the use of color. Above all Bischoff is recognized for his remarkable skills as a colorist, relying first on naturalistic schemes, and then slowly transitioning into brighter and richer palettes for his later works. Remarkably, he is known for successfully translating a scene in whatever color scheme he desired due to his strong understanding of visual perception. It is this reason that some also point out Franz A. Bischoff's reliance on some Expressionism techniques in his later work.
Franz A. Bischoff died in 1929, but as a professional, Franz Arthur Bischoff found incredible success and displayed remarkable skill. Today the works of Franz Bischoff are highly valued and his genius often discussed. His work continues to be displayed in major galleries and is frequently reproduced.
