Monte Carlo 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 Monte Carlo, Monaco

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. A rare view of this place by a well known artist.

Peintre: August Fischer (1854-1921) - Vue de Monaco - Huile sur toile - 49 x 74 cm - signee et datee en bas a droite "Aug. Fischer, Monaco, (18)94" - cadre original (fin du XIX siecle)

The artist painted this Riviera View from his own experience, doing a sketch plein-air and executing the painting afterwards. 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 widely appreciated by collectors.

The painting is in outstanding / very good condition. No damages, no holes, no repairs, no touchup (has also been checked with UV blacklight). It has the original stretcher and frame (frame has slight wear / damage in few places). Our restorer just cleaned it carefully, removed the slightly yellowed old varnish and applied a new varnish. Please refer to the photos to see the good condition.
