Very lively painting of a sail boat on a turbulent sea by the Hague painter Willem Frauenfelder.
Condition: the painting is in very good condition. The colours are very vivid which creates the suggestion of movement in the image. The people pictured appear to be wearing 19th century style clothes. The painting is oil on a wooden panel (see photos). The painting was signed by Frauenfelder in a very clear manner on the bottom left (see photos). The edges of the painting show the traces of a former frame (see photos).
As for the provenance of the painting, it can be reported that the painting was purchased several years ago at an auction in Amsterdam. In 2015, the painting was also auctioned by the then Utrecht owner. There is an old auction sticker attached to the back of the panel (see photos).
Willem Frauenfelder was born in 1899 in The Hague where he finally died in 1977. He is mainly known as a landscape painter. He was the second cousin of the etcher and painter Hendrik Frauenfelder (1885 - 1922) [whose paintings are included in Museum De Lakenhal] and the father (also a teacher) of the painter Fred J. Frauenfelder (b1945) who is now working in Ireland.
