Link to restoration of Wolf fishing village painting

In service with the Austrian cavalry, he moved to New York with his young bride and young daughter about 1888. He supported himself and his family poorly with what was a hobby. Barely squeaking by, however, his painting and sketches can be of high quality and of great interest to me but have had little value commercially to date.
