Kunst, Kosten und Konflikte, Frankfurt/Berlin, 1991, p. 337, no. 325 Siegfried Wichmann, Carl Spitzweg: Verzeichnis der Werke, Stuttgart, 2002, pp. 522-23, no. 1441, catalogued & illustrated Both Günther Roennefahrt and Siegfried Wichmann presume the present work to be no. 325 in the artist's Verkaufsverzeichnis (sale ledger): 'Forest, Girl with Dog, to Hplmair on 1 May 73.' The overall appearance of this work is good and it is ready to hang. The panel is cradled and flat and even. There are three old vertical cracks in the panel in the background to the left of centre, approximately 12cm in from the left edge, which appear to be stable and are not particularly visually distracting. There are some localised small areas of paint shrinkage, notably in the background below the centre of the composition. Under ultra-violet light the old varnish layers fluoresce evenly and quite opaquely, and some minor scattered retouchings are visible notably to the aforementioned panel cracks, a few small spots in the upper right corner, and some spots at the left framing edge. Presented in a decorative coved and fluted gilt frame. "In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.

Description:
There is evidence that Carl Spitzweg traveled to Italy in 1834. His visited Merano, Verona and Trento, as some of his drawings testify. On May 5, Spitzweg arrived in Venice. The present study after a pine tree was made near Verona. The pine is shown in front of a clayey and gray-blue sky. The tree with its delicate branches, that are visible even to the crown, hangs to the right and is wantonly leafed. With fine brushwork, Spitzweg has depicted the various shades of the green leaves. The study is mentioned in the catalogue raisonné by Siegfried Wichmann under no. 70, page 133. The lower center right bears the estate stamp, ‘S with rhombe/Spitzweg’’’’. The paper has been laid down on pressboard. The work is in good overall condition with scattered, minor stains and a few color losses to the edges. The gilt wooden frame is in very good condition with minor wear. The overall dimensions, framed, are 31 x 35.5 cm. The paper measures 15 x 19.3 cm. Carl Spitzweg (1808-1885) Carl Spitzweg studied pharmacy, botany and chemistry at the University of Munich. Before he began teaching himself painting, he worked as a pharmacist until 1833. In 1835, he became a member of the Munich Kunstverein. This was followed by extensive travels through Europe. From 1844, he worked for the ‘Flying Papers’’’’, which were fitted with his humorous drawings. Spitzweg belongs to the late Romantic Movement. Whilst the early works still show the influence of the Biedermeier, the painting style loosened up in his later work, and came close to Impressionism. The artist’’’’s keen sense of coloring derived possibly from his training in pharmacy. In addition to landscapes, Spitzweg frequently depicted characters from the Biedermeier petty bourgeoisie, and satirical illustrations of quirky characters. Works by Carl Spitzweg achieve very high prices on the international auction market. They are on display in major collections, such as the Neue Pinakothek Munich, the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, the Germanic National Museum in Nuremberg, and the Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne.
