Study of Rushing Water

Christian Friedrich Gille German

Not on view

Gille studied landscape painting with Dahl in the 1820s and became a prolific plein-air sketcher. Yet he lived by the modest income he earned as an illustrator and printmaker, producing images that bear little obvious connection to the practice of painting out of doors. This work is from a group of over one hundred oil studies Gille made in the countryside surrounding Dresden that were acquired after his death by the local collector Johann Friedrich Lahmann (1858–1937).
