About the Item

The Nailsmith Houses, Late 19th Century Rattenberg Austria Historical Landscape Exquisitely detailed 1888 watercolor of The Nailsmith Houses, a historical building in Rattenberg, Austria by an unknown artist (19th Century). The Nailsmith Houses are two buildings sitting side by side atop a ledge, in this small picturesque town in Tyrol, and now house a museum called museum in den nagelschmiedhäusern. Their faces have various treatments - stone, plaster, brick, and wood - all of which are rendered with careful consideration by the artist. To the right side of the composition, a large mass of foliage is rendered in lush greens. Date and location are indicated in the lower right corner ("11/8 1888, Rattenberg") Unsigned. No frame. About the Nailsmith Houses (Nagelschmiedhäuser) Museum: The very beginning of the nailsmith-houses can be dated back to the 12th century. They have a very different look compared to the other houses of Rattenberg. They are mostly built of solid rocks with window frames and portals made of (Kramsacher) marble. Their todays appearance goes mostly back to the late gothic era. The inside of this houses have remained in it’s original and romantic shape, where you can catch the feeling of old traditional living by walking through original furnished parlors and bed-rooms, their lovely details telling stories of living in past centuries. Numerous Pictures and paintings, rare antiques and show pieces are giving a tremendous impression about Art and culture in Tyrol.
