Philipp Jakob Bauer, attributed to
The Bockenheimer Gate in Frankfurt at Main
Oil on tin. 48 x 66 cm.
This atmospheric and finely painted work is unsigned, but it could be identical with a previously unlocated painting by Philipp Jakob Bauer with the same title that is listed in literature (Allgemeines Künstlerlexikon, Munich 1993, vol. 7, p. 556). A replica of the lost work dated 1825 is kept in the Historisches Museum in Frankfurt. The costumes, the gendarme's uniform, and the clearly structured composition of this work all speak for a date of around 1825/1830.
South German private ownership.
