ROBERT SLIWINKSKI (GERMAN, 1840-1902), ANTIQUE OIL PAINTING ON PANEL, Genre Street Scene, Signed lower left "R. Sliwinksi"
Item # 130112BEV06
This is a precious antique painting, a somewhat typical subject from Robert Sliwinski capturing a brief moment in time in the streets of a 19th Century German town. The warm tones of the buildings and people imbue a somewhat dreamy nostalgia beneath the purest blue of day brushed into the skies; an ancient spire scrapes pierces the pure blue tones at the end of the street, appearing to be the ruins of a stronghold around which the village has been erected. Life is busy on the street, but the activity is very friendly and reminiscent of a town where everyone knows the happenings of their neighbor.
It is a deeply enjoyable work that unpacks nicely, full of life and enriched with a level of colloquial detail that is captivating.
Measurements: 17 7/8" wide x 21 3/16" high [frame]; 10" wide x 13 1/8" high [panel]
[OVERALL] Losses and surface abrasions around edges where the frame rubs; frame is almost certainly original to the work with numerous dings, chips and losses; repairs to the pierced foliage of the frame, traces of original gilding though the majority is re-gilded.
[UNDER UV] Freshly cleaned and varnished, probably in the last decade or so. No noticeable touch-ups or inpainting. Overall very fine condition.
