Provenance: Wilfried Mayr Stronach Dorotheum, 1721 Kunstauktion, Klassische Moderne, 4 May 1994, cat. no. 16 Private Collection, Innsbruck
Certificate: Prof. Wilfried Kirschl, Innsbruck, 4.2.1993 ‘... This belongs stylistically and thematically to a group of oil paintings that was produced throughout 1890 in Lienz and its surroundings ...’ The high quality of the work is in excellent condition following careful restoration and cleaning. The restoration was concerned above all with splits to the outer margins of the image. The picture was cropped slightly below in order to fit it into an available frame. In doing so, the signature, ‘A. Egger’ was also clipped. The lovely painterly quality and the interesting topographical reference to the artist’s homeland and to a building that inspired him artistically on many occasions give value to this study.
