A Chapel at Gmunden

Josef Mánes - A Chapel at Gmunden
In 1842 Mánes travelled via České Budějovice and Linz to the Salzkammergut and brought back many motifs. In the small town of Gmunden on the Traven Lake he did several landscape sketches, among them a picture of an ancient chapel. Mánes achieved an elegant combination of his feeling for the old chapel with his interest in detail and a faithful rendering of the original Gothic elements of the building.
