Finely executed pastel on paper drawing of bridges spanning a major river, presumably the Rhein in Germany, 11 1/2" by 15 1/2" (15 1/2" by 19 1/2" as framed), signed at lower left by listed German artist RUDOLF MULLER-GERHARDT (1873-1962) (and sometimes spelled as GERHARD). Though listed the artist is apparently not well known. The beautiful impressionist technique speaks for the talent of the artist; were this same work signed by Lesser Ury, a German artist well known for his pastels, it would bring a lofty price indeed. Muller-Gerhardt was born in Chemnitz in eastern Germany and studied in Berlin and Dresden. His landscapes and works including animals have sold frequently at auction and a number are included in museum collections. The condition of this example appears to be excellent (not examined out of frame); what appears as white spots are simple reflections in the glass.
