Alfred B performed cityscapes, often of deserted farm interiors in warm sunlight, which renders a warm and peaceful summer mood. In addition, painted Broge part landscapes, particularly from the regions around Holte, T and R. However, he was best known for its idyllic interiors, if ideal world was often reproduced, inter alia. on the postcard.
