This beautiful Pastel Drawing by the famous Painter, Sculptor and Architect Franz Brantzky shows a romantic scene of a Mill in Essen, Germany. It shows the Deilbachmühle in Langenberg, Essen. The Mill was most likely a wood mill and is attached to a traditional alf-timbered house. The reverse side of the drawing shows an amazing Art Nouveau Print of a Nymph. It states the title "Chant - Gesang - Song". We really love the possibility to find a nice simple frame for this piece of art and switch the side from time to time. It is basically having to different pieces of Art in One.
