Ferdinand Knab (1834–1902): Italian Palace at Dusk, 1893, Oil on panel, 50 x 39 cm, Private Collection The impressive edifice which is the centerpiece of this painting has not been identified, and is probably Knab’s own creation. Perhaps, with his architectural skills, he actually constructed a model of this palace, so he could study it in the round. The artist, obviously fond of his creation, repeated it from different angles in several other works. Here Knab achieves to create a colourful evening mood, which spills its magic over the edifice and mighty groups of trees.
