German School River Landscape With Setting Sun

German School River Landscape With Setting Sun

An evocative 19th-century landscape depicting a winding track running alongside a river before a glowing setting sun.

The artist has achieved so much with a limited palette and they’ve captured the effects of light beautifully.

The painting is housed within an attractive later frame with foliate corners and a decorative inner border.

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.
