Karl Schreder, a well-known Austrian artist, has painted a romantic, arcadian scene on this canvas. The painting shows a rocky coastal landscape, covered with slim birch trees and bushes. A bridge in the foreground leads up to a ruin and on the path between the bridge and the ruins, a young woman is sitting on a rock. She is wearing a long white dress and her full blonde hair falls down her back. Next to her stands a young man, dressed in a short black robe and red scarf, leaning on a shepherd's crook. Above the bridge, the view widens onto the open sea. Dark, grey and white clouds gather on the sky above the sea, hence the island seems to be still covered in sunshine. The autumnally coloured leaves are lighting up in bright orange. This is a finely painted and very atmospheric piece, characteristic of this artist's oeuvre.The painting is of a beautiful appearance, though relined and with some touch ups, the most evident being located above the central tree. The gilt frame is in good condition with traces of wear. The overall dimensions, framed, measure 52 x 62.5 cm; the dimensions of the canvas measure 41.5 x 52.5 cm. The painting is signed lower left, "KARL SCHREDER 1920", and bears an old paper label on the reverse , "'Ruine am Meere' Ölgemälde von Karl Schreder, Wien 1920".
