Franz Graf (1880-1950): Two Boys in a Boat on Lake Mark

Auktionshaus Henry, Mutterstadt, DE posted this nice work in their catalog recently. If you look carefully you can see the influence of another great German Painter in the composition and execution. The painting is dated 1920 and depicts two youths in a boat on Lake Mark. Actually, Franz Graf (1880-1950) was a pupil of Lovis Corinth and the influence shows. This work reminds me of the works of Christian Landenberger (1862-1927) in choice of subject matter and paint application.
