Overview: Up for sale is an incredible impressionist fauvist oil painting on canvas board. The painting depicts the famous William Tell Chapel (Tellskapelle), which marks the location in Swiss folklore where the legendary William Tell evaded capture and slayed the tyrant Albrecht Gessler, leading to the founding of the Swiss Confederacy. This famous Swiss landmark is located on the shore of Lake Lucerne, and makes a wonderful subject for painting. The painting is signed "Th. Yaeggi" at lower right and states the subject as "Switzerland," suggesting that this was either a tourist piece or painted by an English-speaking visitor. Based on the wear and age of the piece, I'd date it to the 1930's to 1950's, with the late 1940's or 1950's being more likely due to WWII. It comes framed in a period carved wood frame.

Condition: The painting is in good condition. It has a number of minor/moderate areas of paint loss in the sky area and to the right of the chapel. The frame has a number of nicks and scuffs, but is in very good condition.

Measurements: Painting measures 12 inches high x 9 inches wide. Frame measures 15.625 inches high x 12.625 inches wide.
