Landscape with a city

Andreas Schelfout

1787-1870

Oil on mahogany panel 21.5 X 31.5 cm in a beautiful  frame very well restored 42 X 51 cm.

What was not my surprise, preparing the enlarged pictures of this painting to see under the writing  inclined lines of a different color in very slight relief …
I returned to see the painting in light curling and with a few difficulties deciphered the signature of Andreas SCHELFOUT , which in oxidizing had become more transparent and less readable. A well-meaning amateur had added some indications that he knew perhaps of family tradition over which a situation “London” which is plausible because the Artist visited England.
The extreme delicacy of the landscape with a foreground animated characters (some of a few millimeters), a distance with the city illuminated by a gap of light and a sky characteristic of the artist reinforce our attribution.
Do not hesitate to ask for photos or additional information by mail or phone.
