Bürkel is a master of watercolor, Munich.

(1802 Pirmasens - 1869 Munich) At the Acqua Felice near Rome, the sketch executed by Bürkel with powerful, energetic strokes depicts a scene rich in figures at the ruins of the Acqua Felice with the fountain next to the Porta Furba before the gates of Rome, which was completed in 1585 under Pope Sixtus V. Sixtus V also had a fountain erected there, which is also known as the Fontana di Clemente because it was restored by Pope Clement XI in 1733. On their way to Rome, this was a popular meeting and stopping point for a rest for many travelers, shepherds, and cattle traders. Bürkel most likely captured the motif after nature on site during one of his four trips to Italy and longer stays in Rome (in 1827, 1831-1833, 1838, and 1853). Bürkel also depicted the theme in several paintings, but the present sketch is not a design for one of his previously known paintings. Pencil on laid paper. 32.5 cm x 40.5 cm. Framed.
