Description: This painting is an early work by Carl Hasenpflug. In 1824, the young artist sold his first cathedral painting to the Dresden collector Johann Gottlob Quandt. He used the proceeds to fund a trip to Brandenburg, Magdeburg, Erfurt and Southern Germany, as far as Lake Constance, where our painting may have been created. After his training with the court theatre painter Gropius, Hasenpflug began to focus on the accurate depiction of topographical scenes. This painting is a fine example from that period. It depicts the town walls and the tower of Überlingen with the ruined town gates and, to the right, the edge of Lake Constance. The creation of atmosphere was of particular interest to him. The late afternoon light produces a long, mysterious shadow in the foreground which falls over the buildings, resulting in the prevalence of a peaceful ambience in this small and early composition by Carl Hasenpflug.
