This is a painting by Joseph Fruhmesser (also referred to as Josef Frahmesser) b. 1927 in Germany. He is listed in Davenports and his works have been sold in many auction houses all over the world. The painting has been professionally cleaned and restored. It came to us with several small tears and many years of dust and dirt. The back of the painting tells the story of it's life. Joseph Fruhmesser loved nature and had a preference for painting landscapes including this lovely mountain scene. The trees in the forefront create a natural frame for the lake and the mountains. To the left of the lake is a winding path. A young woman is walking on the path towards the mountains. It is a calming blue sky with white billowy clouds. The painting came to us unframed and remains that way. It measures 24 inches long x 20 1/2 inches high.
