Heffner, Karl (1849-1925; German)
Early Morning in Bavaria
Oil on canvas, 96.0 x 196.3 cm
Purchased, 1891
National Gallery of Victoria (p.397.1-1) 

This canvas was the second of Heffner’s landscapes to enter the Melbourne collection: see linked artist entry. It is not currently on display, and seems to need a good scrub (it looks cleaner in the reproduction in NGV 1905).


AR 1891, p.24; NGV 1894, p.28 (I.La Trobe Gallery, no.37); NGV 1905, p.8 (I.La Trobe Gallery, no.13; ill.) [£150]
