August Fischer is especially known as a painter of architecture. The motives are old, picturesque houses and bypartier, mostly from abroad, URf.eks. Nürnberg, Rothenburg, Venice and Florence. However, he has also painted interiors and landscapes. Furthermore, it is known that watercolors from his hand, URf.eks. from Skodsborg badehotel, and there are a few drawings have been preserved.
