Image of Franz Hunten Painting

Shipping in the Harbor of Ostend with a fishing boat arriving, a larger ship in the background and several persons on the pier, from the 1850s - signed lower right "F. Hunten" - Oil on canvas - 51 x 72 cm - large original period gilt frame (22 carat real gilted) - very good condition - Private Collection Continental Europe

Note: An early and highly sophisticated work by the artist, who was trained at the Academy in Duesseldorf by Prof. Schirmer.
