More About this Item

Description: [N.N.] Glauchau von der Abendseite, 1857. View of Glauchau in 3D. Gouache on paper, diorama made of multiple layers of drawings; framed behind glass (inner left side of the frame sl. stained). Sl. discoloured but good condition.
Dimensions: Image size 28.5 x 38.5 cm., frame size 34 x 44 cm.
Artist or Maker: [N.N.]
Very fine diorama showing the city of Glauchau (Germany) in the background, 'built' by several layers of cut out and hand-painted houses, churches and trees. In the foreground, connected with the city by a very elaborate walkway with trees, a carriage with four horses and a driver is arriving, while two people are talking and three others are heading for the city. On the right the unknown artist embossed a bridge with low shrubs, on the left a large house and a horse drinking from a trough. Dioramas of this age and - especially - of this quality are hardly ever offered.
