Attrib. Franz Barbarini - 19th Century Watercolour, Ruined Tower in a Landscape



A carefully detailed and delicate watercolour landscape, attributed to the Austrian painter Franz Barbarini (1804-1873). The artist has used extremely fine brush strokes and minute details, layered in order to produce depth in this smart composition. This is most evident in the distant view seen to the left, in contrast with the immediacy of the ruined and overgrown tower. Handsomely presented in an ornate gilt frame with fabric mount, as shown. Unsigned and inscribed. On wove.


In fine condition overall, with only light discolouration, typical for a picture of this age.


16.5 x 12.2cm (6.5" x 4.8")
Framed Size: 28.3 x 23.7cm (11.1" x 9.3")

Artist Biography

Franz Barbarini (1804-1873) was an Austrian landscape painter, engraver and etcher. He studied from 1824 to 1826 at the Vienna Academy in the sculpture class, and continued under sculptor Josef Kempel. After initial engraving, he turned to landscape painting, and took many study trips through the Austrian and Swiss Alps to produce realistic oil paintings, watercolours, and drawings.
