Rudolf Hellgrewe, Autumnal Landscape With Sunset

Rudolf Hellgrewe, Autumnal Landscape With Sunset

A peaceful early 20th-century oil on canvas by noteworthy German painter, Rudolf Hellgrewe (1860-1926). You can imagine Hellgrewe sat by his easel while he captured this beautiful Autumnal scene. It’s an interesting composition with the trees wrapping around the lake and guiding our eyes towards the distant hills on the left.

Hellgrewe studied at the Berlin Art Academy and he’s primarily known for the work he produced while travelling through East Africa. In 2018, his masterpiece, ‘Crossing the Wadi’, reached £12,000 at Sotheby’s.

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.
