This colorful expressive work is typical for the German artist Rainer Fetting. After his eleven-year sojourn in New York, he processed his impressions in his cityscapes – this work is such an example. The outlines of Manhattan’s skyscrapers are visible in the background, whilst the Brooklyn Bridge is looming the foreground. The composition is incredibly dynamic – from the diagonal bridge, to the contrasting colors and the expressive lines.
The work is in very good condition. It is signed and dated lower right with ‘Fetting 99’ and titled lower center with ‘Brooklyn bridge’. The dimensions of the sheet are 56.1 x 76.5 cm and the overall dimensions, framed are 83.5 x 101 cm.
