1 8 1 8 Dance - 1 8 6 9 Berlin: A visually rich atmosphere with a golden evening setting.

(1818 Danzig - 1869 Berlin) On the Beach, Two-masted Ship Landed at Sunset Large-format, atmospherically tuned, probably created around 1855, main work of the significant marine and landscape painter with coloristically subtle, effective depiction of the golden evening light. Eduard Hildebrandt studied in the studio of Wilhelm Krause in Berlin and undertook a study trip to the island of Rügen in 1838, where he discovered the landscape of the German Baltic Sea coast as a subject for himself; in 1839, he followed with another study trip to the coasts of England and Scotland. Through Krause's mediation, Hildebrandt went to Paris in 1841, where he became a student of the marine painter Eugène Isabey, who had a lasting influence on him. In 1843, Hildebrandt returned to Berlin, financed by Humboldt, and King Friedrich Wilhelm IV funded a two-year journey to North America and Brazil. Later, numerous further journeys followed around the world, including through the Mediterranean, to Madeira, the Canary Islands, Spain, Portugal, and the Near East. In addition to his seascapes and coastal motifs, he also created landscapes with extraordinary light and shadow effects. Many of his works ended up in royal possession. A nearly equally large and thematically related painting, "Beach in the Evening Light" from 1855, is located in the Old National Gallery in Berlin (Inv. No. W.S. 89). Oil on canvas; signed; 83 cm x 115 cm. Framed.
