Wilhelm Brandenburg, Nocturne With Windmill

Wilhelm Brandenburg, Nocturne With Windmill

An atmospheric, beautifully framed, 19th-century landscape painting by German artist, Wilhelm Brandenburg (1824-1901). The composition is dominated by a proud old windmill that stands on the brow of a hill. The moon is partially covered by clouds and two farm buildings are gently lit.

Brandenburg studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under Carl Hilgers and he’s known for his landscapes depicting views on the Rhine and the Moselle rivers.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed within a swept foliate frame.
