EDUARD FISCHER (BERLIN, 1852-1905) SEASCAPE PAINTING
In oil on canvas, Signed lower right "Ed. Fischer '84"
Item # 611ZWG03A


An absolutely gorgeous presentation piece, this stunning seascape captures a view along the beach in the afternoon after fishing vessels have been brought onshore.  A mother strolls along with her child in hand past a small hut where a man hunches beside a smoky fire; figures are congregated on the shore in the distance and a few thatched huts can be seen past the boats.  The distinct influence of the Barbizon school can be seen in the gloomy palette and traces of impressionism that perfectly capture the mood of the moment.  The cold blue waters crash over tumbled rocks lining the beach under a cloudy sky.  The painting is signed in the lower right corner Ed. Fischer and dated '84.  We have recently had this work fully restored by our conservator and it is preserved in outstanding overall condition..
