1943 Russland Stalingrad Painting, Franz Seelbach 


You're viewing an oil painting that I purchased at an estate sale a few years ago. It measures about 10 by 7 inches. The painting is on heavy canvas with some sort of composition board backing. The subject is a beautiful, but somber forest and meadow scene. It needs to be cleaned, but even afterwards I suspect it would still project a solemn mood.

Originally known as Volgograd, the city of was renamed Stalingrad by the Soviets, and has since resumed using its original name. It was the scene of what may be the bloodiest battle in human history. It's estimated that 850,000 Axis soldiers and 750,000 Soviet soldiers died, along with an uncountable number of civilians killed during the battle that lasted from Aug. 21, 1942 to Feb. 2, 1943.
