Description An early Pennsylvania landscape by Frederick Spang depicting a home on a knoll in subtle sunlight.

It is currently in a reproduction frame. The overall framed measurement is 30" wide x 24" high.

Frederick A. Spang (1834-1891) was born in Pennsylvania in 1834 and studied under the tutelage of Professor J. R. Lambdin, a director at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia. Spang's artistic endeavors were halted by the outbreak of the Civil War. Upon his return, he traveled to California and then back to Reading, Pennsylvania where he continued his artistic career and offered instruction to his contemporaries of Berks County. Although considered a renowned portrait painter, Spang also excelled at his renditions of landscapes, still lifes, and animal paintings. Spang was instrumental in the early years of the formation of the art colony in Reading, Pennsylvania that spanned over one hundred years.
