Regular price $1,400.00 Sale

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
