Watercolor painting of a scene that appears to be a youngster with adults at the entrance of a school, a total of five figures in the composition. The work, 13" by 10 1/4" (20" by 18" in a contemporary gold frame, no mat) is signed at lower center by well listed German artist CARL HUBNER (1814-1879). Hubner was educated in art at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. He received instruction from Carl Ferdinand Sohn and Wilhelm von Schadow. An academic painter, trained in the academic tradition of Germany at the time, he specialized in rural scenes and scenes involving social commentary.on topics such as poverty and beneficence. Hubner's known works seem to be mostly oil paintings, which can go to five figures at auction, especially when of large size. This watercolor has attenuated color; whether by artist intent or later acquired fading from light exposure is difficult to ascertain. There are old brown mat lines near the edge of the paper, particularly at left, top and right. This would be hidden by a new, fresh mat.
