Göteborg's watercolours by Ludvig Messmann
Carl Ludvig Messmann (1826-1893) was born in Copenhagen and he moved to Göteborg in 1859. He immortalised this city in numerous paintings, some in oil, but mostly in watercolours. Many of them are now kept in the city museum which published few years ago a pack of cards with 55 reproductions found in an album made in 1890. This “Göteborgs Album” was published by Alida Magnus and it contains 65 watercolours plus the title page which has been used for the back of the cards.
