Inizialmente, si dedica principalmente alla pittura di genere, successivamente si occupa di spettacoli paesaggistici, nature morte e scene mitologiche.
Molte delle sue opere della fine del secolo appartengono all'allora popolare tendenza liberty di presentare il mondo, secondo la quale uomo e natura sono una felice unità.

Oggi i dipinti di Glücklich sono presenti in numerosi musei tedeschi, tra cui nella Nuova Pinacoteca di Monaco e nella Kunsthalle di Amburgo.
