August Fischer (1854-1921) studied at the Royal Academy in Copenhagen and lived after 1885 in Vienna. He travelled a lot and his views from Italy, Switzerland, Germany are appearing regularly on the art markets. In most cases he used a "fresh" light palette, depicting the motiv on a sunny day. Please note that we are NOT interested in Danish motifs by this artist.
The FineArtEmporium is interested in the direct purchase of foreign (non-Danish) views and landscapes by this artist and can pay a good price. Please refer to our page "Contact" and send an e-mail to with the information requested there. You will receive an answer usually within 48-72 hours (up to a week in rare cases).

Examples of pictures by the artist:

Monte Carlo / Monaco View

Important Coastal View of Monte Carlo, Monaco - 1894 - sunshine view of the "Rock" in Monaco with the Grimaldi Palace and the Bay which is today the Port de Fontvieille (private Yacht Harbor) - Oil on canvas on original stretcher, 49 by 74 cm (19 by 29 in.), with frame 62 x 88 cm (24 1/2 by 35 in.) - signed and dated "Aug. Fischer, Monaco, (18)94" lower right - outstanding condition, no damage or retouch, cleaned, ready to hang, original frame (with slight wear) - Private Collection, Europe

Note: As we note on this painting: Towards the end of the 19th Century this town and bay was a quite calm and romantic coastal place with a few buildings only. There are olive trees in the foreground and there is only one two-masted local sailing vessel on the sea. Photo Copyright is with the FineArtEmporium.
