Lot description
Oil on canvas, firmly laid on cardboard
Signed and dated lower center. 17,8 x 23,3 cm (7 x 9,1 in), visible area
The small landscape and animal depiction, which is very rich in detail and was made from an unusually close point of view, originates from the days of Kuhnert's first East Africa expidition (1891/92). [JS].

We are grateful to Ms. Dr. Grettmann-Werner, Bremen, for her expert advice. The painting is registered in the unpublished catalog raisonné under the number 6456.
