In 1897 List was one of the founders of the Viennese Secession and exhibited there. But List is best known for his engravings, where he used wood and lithography in turn.

His paintings are similar to those in the art of Gustav Klimt. Thematically, he worked on portraits, landscapes and genre scenes, often with magical or mythological subjects. Important are especially its graphics, woodcuts and lithographs.
