Heidy Stangenberg-Merck (1922-2014) - 1989 Oil, Lato Gebirge
DescriptionA graphic late 20th century landscape depicting the ruins of the ancient city of Lato in Crete, Greece. The artist Heidy Stangenberg-Merck has used a variety of expressive brushstrokes that create a depth and originality to Stangenberg-Merck's work. The artist's life long love for the Mediterranean and coastal landscape painting have been wonderfully captured here. She regularly travelled to Greece and countries situated close to the Adriatic sea, organising her first trip in 1956 and continuing until her death. This painting was possibly completed during one of these research trips to Greece. Inscribed on the reverse with the location. Also with a label for the 'Ing Baring's Collection', reference 'PT199'. Signed. On canvas on stretchers.
The condition is typical for a picture of this age including some discolouration and craquelure. There are areas of surface dirt and abrasions. With a very small dent to the upper left corner. Very minor flecks of paint loss to scattered areas of the canvas. Inspection under UV light reveals no signs of restoration.
