"Eugene Eckendorf : Mountain Village"But who is this Eugene Eckendorf? For once an artist signs legibly, I find no mention in my directories and on the Internet! There was indeed a castle in Alsace that bore this name, but the architecture of the houses makes me think more of the Alps or Switzerland. The fact remains that he possessed a good brush stroke and, above all, an unusual sense of light: this composition emphasized by the drinking troughs which lead to a violently illuminated gap, yet leaving shades in the shade to be classical, is no less effective. Oil on canvas 36 X 50 cm covered with a good flat German gilded frame 46 X 60 cm rugged on the perimeter. The above is above all aimed at clearing the poor quality of my photos which do not manage to make one and the other!
