Two window scenes

Carl Wilhelm Goetzloff, A Balcony on the Gulf of Naples, 1826; he was a painter from Dresden who settled in Naples, and painted Italian scenes which are mostly none too memorable; but this is exquisite, clearly and freshly observed in the manner of the best German studies from the Romantic period. A nice cluster of ancient Greek vases in the foreground.

A sketch of a girl at a window by a Hungarian artist, Caroly Brocky, likewise above his normal standard, though nowhere near as good as the one above.
