German School Lake By Moonlight

German School Lake By Moonlight

An atmospheric late 19th-century oil on canvas depicting a small fishing vessel floating on a lake by moonlight. The artist has captured the effects of light so majestically, particularly where it cascades across the ripples of water.

The painting is monogrammed in the lower right, maybe PB, and inscribed illegibly on the reverse.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
