Paul Gottlieb Weber 1852 Antique Oil Painting End of Summer Landscape PA Germany
Dark and inviting, the oil painting we are offering by Paul Gottlieb Weber, is lovely to look at and draws you in. Representing the end of summer, beginning of fall, the light at the end of the day streams through the trees and illuminates the lake and people on horseback , trotting down a dirt path. The right lower foreground depicts a couple rowing a row boat back to shore . The focal point features a small bridge over the pond/ lake body of water. A very peaceful and tranquil scene. A long day with the crisp air of fall just beginning and the first leaves look to be turning to a red-orange hue. What a wonderful memory is invoked.
The painting is of Upper Darby, Delaware County Pennsylvania in 1852.
