This beautiful Aquarell Painting by the famous Painter, Sculptor and Architect Franz Brantzky shows beautiful Still Life. It is one of the few of the works by Brantzky without an architectural connection. The Still life shows a typical Continental European Wine Jug, a wine glass full of red wine, radishes and Peaches. Still Lifes originate in the Middle Ages and Ancient Graeco-Roman art, it emerged as a distinct genre and professional specialization in Western painting by the late 16th century, and has remained significant since then. This specific one would look beautiful when framed in a simple frame.
It comes on a grey backingboard.
