Large-format oil on canvas painting depicting a view of Fürstenau Castle (Schloss Fürstenau), located in the Steinbach district of Michelstadt in Odenwald (Germany). The artist depicts the magnificent arch built in 1588 of the castle courtyard.

Otto Johann Rut was an Austrian-Canadian landscape painter.

Born on 29 June 1910 in Schwechat, a town southwest of Vienna, he studied art at the art school in the capital. After the Second World War, he emigrated to Canada in 1950. Specialising in Canadian and European landscapes, the artist was able to capture a superior depth of field, mixing his own colour spectrum to recreate hues rarely seen outside of nature. His style could range from bold and dynamic to serene and subdued.

A tireless painter, he worked well into his 80s. His works are represented in numerous private art collections, mainly in Ontario and Quebec. The Ottawa City Hall owns one of his works.

Otto Rut died in Montreal on 28 January 2005.
