About

This very fine quality 19th century oil on canvas in dark brown wood frame with gold leaves details throughout is signed by Joseph Brunner (Vienna 1826-1893) and was painted in 1869. This oil painting bucolic landscape depicts the Attersee, a lake in Austria surrounded by the mountains and by a pristine nature. The peaceful overall impression shaped by lake’s play of light meandering between turquoise and matte pale blue is perfectly emphasized by trees’ various green tones. The white, gray and light brown rocky mountains embrace the lake and the light blue cloudy sky enhances the feeling of tranquility. In the quiet lake, in the middle of the painting, a father is fishing on a boat while his little daughter is looking at him, this scene surrounded by this beautiful natural environment reflects calm and contemplativeness. In the present work, Brunner presents an extremely detailed view of the lake starting from the water of the lake in foreground and the dark brown rocks covered with moss and with small red flowers in some points at the bottom, till the leaves on the pine trees painted with small, deft brushstrokes. In the background to the right of the painting you can also see a small village. The painter is very able to catch the luxuriant character of the whole landscape and this painting is a celebration of the nuances of atmosphere, weather, and light that recalls Barbizon’s school realism traits. The painting is signed and dated Jos. Brunner 1869 at the bottom right corner. The painter hand wrote an inscription in German with his name and a fully detailed description of the place he was painting (Der Attersee mit den Schafberg, der Drachenstein- Wond und den Dorfe Unter – Ach.) and put it on a sheet glued to the back of the frame. There is also an Italian hand wrote inscription at the bottom left verso (In memoria del 31 Gennaio 1867 giorno di nascita dell’Achille), it seems to indicate that this painting was a celebration for the day of birth of Achille that happened on January 31st 1867 These very important and unusual handwritten notes contribute to making this extraordinary painting even more magical, rare and precious. Very good condition and handsome original patina, interesting cracquele in some points. New dark brown wood frame with gold leaves details throughout.
