A sweet painting of a European scene, finely rendered. Almost photographic in some places, and impressionistic in others. This piece also has an architectural quality, documenting the structure of the small bridge quite exactly.
Condition is great with normal wear and minor losses to the gold of the frame that can be easily touched up. The painting is signed as shown, "Dr. C Persemt, Bremen" at the lower left. The unusual straps on the back of the frame securing the stretchers at the bottom are made of leather. Measures 21 3/4" x 29 3/8" overall, with the painting on its stretchers measuring 18 1/2" x 26 1/8".
Painted by a skilled artist, this piece draws your eye along the stream and over the flowering hedges into the hazy distance through the break in the tree line. A lovely piece of original art that you will savor for years. Enjoy!
