Original Oil Painting by M. Edward Griff
A city bridge across a small European town's river was a traditional Griff theme in tandem with, at that time, a "modern" color palette. M. Edward Griff, a listed artist, born in Vienna, (unknown date), he would have painted this scene some time before 1950.
He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. After his graduation, Griff went to Italy, Spain and France where he painted with many masters of later recognition. Griff was of the Modern Impressionistic School.
