RL Antique 19th C Signed Oil on Canvas Painting by Godtfred Rump (1816 - 1880) Danish Artist
Antique original 19th C oil on canvas artwork. Signed oil painting by 19th century Danish artist Godtfred Rump (1816 - 1880) of an atmospheric street scene at night. The artists view is of a plaza or town square from the side street where there appears to be either a fire or some sort of celebration employing fireworks ( a fire is assumed as there would be evidence of a crowd with celebrating fireworks). The direct source is blocked by the column of the corner building closest to us. The darkness of the night if further intensified by the lack of stars or moon and the slim slivers of light emanating from the upstairs windows on the left hand side building. Moody and atmospheric it intimates energy without actually depicting anything obvious to the eye.
