    Das Haus der Therese Krones in Döbling in Wien depicts the house of the famous 19th Century actress in the fashionable suburb of Hohe Warte. Moll himself lived in the area during his years as co-founder of the Vienna Secession and later, as artistic manager of the celebrated avant-garde Galerie Miethke in Vienna. The houses and vineyards of the Hohe Warte were often the subject of his paintings, and although the composition is reminiscent of Blick auf Heiligenstadt und den Nussberg, 1904-1905 (Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, inv. no. 5369), the relatively open brushstrokes in particular in the section of the trees indicates that the work dates from 1912-1914.
