Alexander Gonda was a renowned German artist who was noted for his realistic depictions of rural life. Born in 1884 in the former German Empire, Gonda was heavily influenced by the Dutch Masters, particularly their use of chiaroscuro. He was an authority on the history of German art, and he developed an interest in parochial scenes, often using light and shadow to create a mood of romanticism in his work. He traveled extensively, particularly in Europe, and his works are held in many museums and private collections. Notable works by Gonda include 'Summer Afternoon in the Village' (1922), 'The Fisherman's House' (1926), and 'The Market Square' (1932).
