N.B. Impressionist painter Lesser Ury was born in Brinbaum, Germany, but moved to Berlin with his family in 1972, following the death of his father. Although he left Berlin to study in Dusseldorf, Brussels, Paris, and Stuttgart, Ury returned there to set up his studio. The city of Berlin provided a constant source of inspiration for Ury, who is best known for his urban landscapes under dark cloud-filled or moonlit skies.
Oil on paper laid down to board. Signature appears to be in pen, slightly overcleaned. Minor inpainting in the area of the bridge arch.
