The oil painting Landscape (1867) is representative of Hötzendorf’s later work. This painting represents all his painting talents: a skilful composition, a romantic attitude towards ruins of architectural monuments, a detailed landscape and a refined use of light. All these elements create a qualitative distinction between Hötzendorf and other Croatian painters of his time.

His painting Return of the Fishermen (1935) is representative of Kljaković’s style of painting in mid 1930s. Although one can notice a gradual softening of the previously distinctly hard modelling of objects and figures, which used to be at the core of Kljaković’s style by that point, the painting is still dominated by an interest in volume and thought-out composition, which lends the scene an impression of classical grandeur.
The painting Portrait of a Girl (with doll and dog) from 1857, the last known Karas’ work, was made in Đakovo, where he came to live at the invitation of Josip Juraj Strossmayer, shortly before he died. It is a portrait in a relatively conventional form, dominated by vivid colours of the background, bed and drapery and with an interesting element of landscape visible through an open window.
