Description & Technical information

Hans Lietzmann was best known for his landscape paintings and gouaches of the Alpine scenery and rocky shorelines of the Lake Garda region. He generally worked en plein air, and his paintings are characterized by confident brushwork and a refined handling of light and shade, allied to a particular feeling for colour. The present sheet was drawn in 1906, a few years after the artist had settled in Torbole, during a period when he was at his happiest and most productive. 

Among comparable works by Lietzmann is a gouache view of The ‘Marocche’ Rocks near Torbole, signed and dated 1910, which was sold at auction in Germany in 2015, and is today in an Italian private collection.
