Motivated through the french Pleinairism Schindler turned himself towards the so- called open-air painting. According to this he created 1870 a few versions of "paysages intimes". In his young years he was associated with the german romantics and painted his "Waldfräulein". 1873 Emil Schindler travelled to Dalamatia, where upon the request of the industrialist Friedrich Baron von Leitenberger, he should produce two paintings.
