German Oil Painting On Board 19th Century, Signed by Artist, Munchen Fishing Boat on a Lake. This painting showing four fishermen in a small row boat, pulling in their fishing nets, is in as found condition. It has light surface dirt and some small spots of old touchups. Signed in the lower left corner, 'M. Gerbe (or Gerber, Gerbel I can not read) Munchen' I am guessing it is one of the lakes close to Munich, Germany. The painting measures about 14 inches wide and 10-3/4 inches tall. The original gilded wood frame measures about 17-1/4 inches wide and 14 inches tall. It has its original swivel loop hanger on back. It is a great impressionist plein air painting with lots of small detail. There are other sail boats as well as another fishing boat in the back ground. You can see the edge of a town along the shore below the mountains where the fields of green grass sweep up the sides. This could be Lake Chiemsee.
