Melchior Kern, Landscape With Meadow & Buildings

Melchior Kern, Landscape With Meadow & Buildings

An atmospheric late 19th-century oil on board depicting a meadow before several buildings and trees.

The artist, Melchior "Melch" Kern (1872-1947), trained at the Munich Art Academy and worked in and around the City for most of his life. He generally painted scenes from rural villages and seemed to enjoy working in the landscape.

During his lifetime, he was represented at the Munich Art Exhibition and the Great Berlin Art Exhibition.

The painting is signed in the lower left and held within a later frame.

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.
