Information about author
This image might be from a series of early artist’s works, performed before his trips to Paris. In the inventory book the work is registered under the title “Piskova Street in Lviv”. The objects that are represented in the work by O. Dobrowolski don’t exist in this street, so this veduta isn’t topographically specified. The image represents a part of the street; it goes down along the brick pillars of the fence and the expressive villa-type house depicted below; it is decorated with a plastic relief between the windows and the pediment. The color scheme is represented in warm tones, in particular the red color depicts the roof of the villa and the fence in front of it; in the pillars’ brickwork red elements are combined with ocher and beige ones. The plastered facade of the villa is depicted in the same colors. Green leaves of trees emerge from under the green bars of the fence. The composition is vertically crossed by a street lamp; it is tilted to the left and installed on a cobbled and grassy sidewalk.
In the lower right part of the work there is the author’s signature “Odo Dobrowolski” written in italics.
