"Fresh Snow in Bavaria" by Erwin Kettemann

About the Item

Oil on canvas, signed lower right. Erwin Kettemann (1897–1971) was a landscape painter from Munich. He was a representative of late Impressionism as well as the 19th century “Karlsruher Schule”. In the style of the Karlruhe Schule, a close study and observation of nature constituted an essential part of the work. He depicted trees, plants, rocks, stones, waterfalls and streams. He emphasized the details of geological Formations, and different mountain forms as well as geographical details. Romanticism and the depiction of mood did not play any role, as artworks were not regarded as expressions of the inner world of the artists. The focus is on the landscape north of the Alps; artworks depicting Italy and the ideal or classical models did not belong in this genre. Landscape carried references to geology.

  • "Fishing in the Rapids" by Gustaf Fredrik Rydberg
    Located in Wiscasset, ME
    Oil on canvas, signed and indistinctly dated lower left. Presented in most likely the original frame measuring 28"x 35". Gustaf Fredrik Rydberg was born at Malmö, Sweden. His father, Gustaf Isak Rydberg, was the local postmaster. From 1852 to 1855, he was a student of the landscape painter, Frederik Christian Kiærskou, at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, then continued at the Royal Swedish Academy of Fine Arts where he studied under Edward Bergh. In 1859, as many Swedes did, he went to Düsseldorf to complete his studies. His first instructor was the Norwegian landscape painter, Hans Fredrik Gude, followed by Oswald Achenbach. He spent five years there, visiting Skåne in the summers, which would remain one of his favorite places to sketch and paint. After returning to Sweden, in 1866, he was named a member candidate (agré) at the Royal Academy and had his first exhibition. In 1868, he made a study trip to Norway in the company of King Karl XV and made another trip there on the King's behalf the following year. Around 1870, he began to paint exclusively En plein air. He was elected a full member of the Academy in 1871. Over the next decade, he made numerous trips to Paris, Belgium and the Netherlands. In 1887, he married Ebba Josephina Borgström (1839–1905). Later, they left Stockholm to live in Västerås and, in 1897, settled permanently in Skåne. A major retrospective jubilee was held by the Academy in 1920, on the occasion of his 85th birthday.
