Albert Leopold Rheinemann, Extensive Coastal Scene With Cottages

Albert Leopold Rheinemann, Extensive Coastal Scene With Cottages

This peaceful 19th-century landscape painting by German artist Albert Leopold Rheinemann (1833-1879) depicts a coastal scene with moored fishing vessels and cottages. It evokes the tranquillity of a day resting by the shore.

In the foreground, a woman is standing by a small boat as she chats to a fisherman. Perhaps he’s just returned after a morning at sea. Behind them, the smoke from a cottage rises skyward, its orange roof creating an accent in the view.

Rheinemann trained under the Norwegian artist, Hans Fredrik Gude (1825-1903), who was a master of coastal landscapes. Gude’s work is similar but often imbued with a sense of romantic embellishment. Here, the teacher’s style is evident, yet Rheinemann has avoided romance in favour of simple reality.
