Mounted in its original gilded frame, this compelling mountain landscape. Probably painted around 1950 of a scene from his native Bavaria, this impressionistic interpretation by Franz Winter looks to be executed by palate knife in heavy impasto. Paint is crazed overall and there is no evidence of damage or restoration. Could use cleaning and varnishing as varnish has darkened.
Signed "F. Winter, Munchen". Franz Winter was born in 1926 in Nuremburg, Germany, studied at the Kuntsakademie Munchen (Art Academy of Munich) and received professional recognition by the Staatliche Anerkennnung Bayern . He painted prolifically, specializing in landscapes of the breathtakingly beautiful countryside around him. His works hang in many private collections and museums, most notably the Kunstachaffender Munchen.
Stretched canvas measures 20" X 23-3/4". Framed is 26" X 29-3/4".
