PROVENANCE: Private collection Southern Germany.

A deep love of Italy and its culture became manifest in Peiffer Watenphul‘s pictorial world which is full of calmness and Mediterranean composure. The freeze-like accumulation of southern fruits which Peiffer Watenphul arranged here is both an invitation to participate in a life of contemplation. Peiffer Watenphul had never been carried away to depict the south in exuberant colors, as it was the case with many his contemporaries. His painting culture skilled in old frescoes adores a lifestyle of resting, despite all dynamic hectic of modern days. [KD].
