  • Oberwesel on Rhein Scenic Landscape 19th century British Master Oil Painting
    Located in Stockholm, SE
    Painting is signed “H. Gritten” in the lower center. Spectacular depiction of one of most picturesque town on the middle Rhein was painted in the mid-19th century by British artist Henry Gritten (1818 –1873) who traversed the world extensively in pursuit of capturing its beauty on canvas. This artwork with a magnificent combination of light, color and atmosphere of the story is a testament to his giftedness and talent. Careful attention to detail in the foreground, including human figures, a horseman, merchant ships with sailors, and architectural elements, brings the scene to life, thereby drawing the viewer into the subject depicted on the canvas. One cannot help but marvel at the way Gritten conveys depth and volume through his use of various shades and the subtle haze of perspective, creating a sense of distance and space that is captivating. The warm glow of the sunset on a hot sunny day further enhances the visual impact of the painting. This artwork invites the viewer to briefly travel back in time and appreciate all the beauty of a bygone era. Antique oil painting on “C.E.
