Gerhard Graf (1883-1960) - Early 20th Century Gouache, Continental Street Scene

Item Sold


An impressive gouache scene by highly regarded German artist Gerhard Graf. Showing a cobbled street scene Graf has beautifully captured the array of textures visible in the carved architecture and haphazard stone work. Known for his brilliant use of colour and effortlessly expressive style, this study gives us an insight into the artist's process. His layering of watercolour wash behind thick gouache gives the composition complex form and depth. Drawing inspiration from Cezanne, Graf can be tentatively placed amongst the post-impressionists in terms of style. Although his playful use of line and form both complements the subject matter and provides a unique interpretation of the movement. Signed. On wove.


There are some very light foxing spots visible to the sky area and fine craqueluree to the white paint pigments. Overall the appearance is very good.
