Scene in Prospect Park, Brooklyn
A watercolor on paper landscape painting of Prospect Park in Brooklyn by Charles Schabelitz (1844 - 1905). A rowboat is moored in a pond in the right foreground. A man and a dog stand at the base of the stone steps which lead up from the left foreground into the dense foliage which covers the background areas.
Charles "Karl" Schabelitz was born in Basel, Switzerland and immigrated to the U.S. By 1880, he was living and working in the Stapleton section of Staten Island. At one time he also worked as a lithographer in Cleveland, Ohio. A set of murals done by Schabeltiz once adorned the walls of Scheffel Hall on 3rd Avenue in New York City.
