This original oil painting on wooden panel board measures approximately 20 by 26 inches and sits in a carved and gilded frame measuring about 26 by 32 inches.
It is signed J. Winterholler just left of center bottom.
It is a view of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in the Bavarian Alps (site of the 1936 Winter Olympics).
The condition of the painting is very good except for a very small one inch long wood split on either edge, with no losses (see photo enlargements of both). The painting appears to date to the 1940-50 period, or possibly earlier. The frame is newer and has a few very minor losses to detail, but is overall quite presentable.
This original oil painting on old artist's board measures 12 1/2 by 18 inches and it sits in a gilded oak frame (18 x 24 inches) with a raised antique rake motif on it (see photo).
It is unsigned and dates circa 1880-1910. It appears to be Russian or Baltic in origin and the simple frame with rake motif seems to verify that observation.
It is in excellent condition with no evidence of restoration or repairs. It has the remnant of an old label on the reverse. The simple frame appears to be contemporary with the work itself.
This original oil painting on stretched canvas measures 28.5cm by 33cm (about 11 1/4 by 13 inches, not including the simple but detailed wooden frame it sits in.
The subject is an alpine mountain landscape with a Swiss or Bavarian style building and a dome topped church or building beyond. The scene includes snow capped mountains in the distance.
It is signed J. Felsinger in the lower right portion of the painting. Josef Felsinger (1908-1972) is listed on Artprice.com with a history of auction sales.
This painting is executed in a very crisp, well detailed impressionist style.
The colors are vibrant and better looking in person than the photos would indicate. Any white dots on the pictures are the result of flash bounce back and are NOT on the painting itself.
There is a very fine spiderweb pattern of crackling of the canvas from age that does not show up in the photos, but only when the painting is lit from behind.
Overall, this is a very attractive little gem of a painting by a known artist. The buyer will not be disappointed.

This original oil painting on stretched canvas measures approximately 24 by 36 inches (image only) and it is mounted in a simple carved and painted wooden frame.
The subject is a small European or Baltic village set in a snow covered landscape by a lake or river.
It is signed, somewhat illegibly, in the lower right corner (see enlarged photo). It appears to be E. Brac--- (Possibly E Bracht or E. Bracket?)
We estimate this painting to be between late 18th to 19th century in style and execution.
The quality of the work is exceptional and was obviously painted by a very talented artist.
The condition of the painting is generally good, but it has an overall craquelure which shows up more obviously under certain lighting conditions.
It also has a small, less than professional repair in the lower left corner (see enlarged photo). It is not that obvious because it is in a dark bush, but it is there.
For a collector with a bit of imagination, this painting may turn out to be an amazing work of art, after a little repair and additional research.
