A gorgeous example of Art Nouveau by Robert Engels depicting two elegant women wearing medieval white robes as a knight on a black horse glances over his shoulder as he passes by... The Passing.

Robert Engels was born in Solingen in the Ruhr. He studied in Düsseldorf and Vienna then settled in Munich, where he was a professor at the School of Arts and Crafts. Engels was married to the watercolourist Gustava Engels von Veit. Engels also created advertising posters and designs for the theatre (Idbury Prints)
