Early 20th-Century Evening Street Scene With Canal & Figures

Early 20th-Century Evening Street Scene With Canal & Figures

An impressionistic early 20th-century oil on canvas depicting a chilly scene in Scandinavia. The evening’s sun is disappearing on the horizon as a group of figures rest by a canal.

The artist, S Wedel, has created a beautiful graduated sky that culminates with an intense glow of pink and orange. It’s an unusual piece due to the contrast between the dark architectural silhouettes and the light blue above.

The painting is signed/dated in the lower right and housed within a later gilded frame.
