Antique Pair Paintings by Raimund Von Wichera

REGENT ANTIQUES
A lovely pair of Austrian oil on board framed paintings by Raimund Ritter Von Wichera, ( 1862-1925) both signed and circa 1890 in date.
The paintings delightfully present two pairs of courting couples in period costumes in beautiful garden settings.

The artist used very vibrant pastel colours to add some mystery to the scenery and contrast the vivid greens of the garden.

Condition:
In excellent condition the painting and frame having been beautifully cleaned in our workshops, please see photos for confirmation.
