GOUACHE OF ROTHENFELS CASTLE, BERG ROTHENFELS, BAVARIA 18TH C. GERMAN OR ITALIAN
Beautiful 18th century gouache showing a landscape with figures an the foreground and Rothenfels Castle on the crest of a hill in the center. Painted by a very talented artist- either an Italian artist traveling or a German who had studied in Italy. This is a fine gouache in a gilt wood frame with hand painted mat.
Burg Rothenfels overlooks the Main river between Würzburg and
Aschaffenburg. Its oldest parts were built around 1170 or 1180, like
the tower (Bergfried) and some external walls. Most of the extant
buildings of the main castle were built between 1500 and 1525
