Karl von Blaas was an Austrian painter known for his detailed and expressive historical and religious paintings. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and Venice, becoming a prominent figure in 19th-century academic art.

"Die Heilige Katharina" (Saint Catherine) is a notable work by Karl von Blaas, created in 1850. The painting depicts Saint Catherine of Alexandria surrounded by angels, emphasizing her sanctity and divine connection. The circular composition draws attention to Saint Catherine, who is shown in a state of repose, possibly during her ascension to heaven. The serene landscape in the background adds to the celestial atmosphere. This painting is a prime example of 19th-century religious art, showcasing Blaas's skill in conveying spiritual themes with rich color and detail.
