(1810 Munich - 1884 ibid) Sunset at the Easter Lakes Under the narrow crescent moon in the cloudless sky, illuminated by the last warm rays of the already set sun on the horizon, stretches the wide, completely still lakeside landscape, in the depths of which some deer graze silently. Extremely evocative, virtuosic, finely painted, characteristic impression of Zwengauer, who studied at the Academy in Munich, among others, as a student of Peter von Cornelius. Trained in history painting, Zwengauer had already been drawn to the Bavarian and Austrian Alps in 1828, where he conducted extensive landscape studies and brought numerous sketches and watercolors home. Based on a subtle observation of nature, he developed a masterful passion for depicting atmospheric sunsets. Oil on canvas, relined. Signed. On the verso, label of the Kunstsalon Krone, Hamburg. 53 cm x 99 cm. Framed.
