Nice large oil of canvas of a young girl biting into an apple. The portrait painting has been re-varnished and mounted in a modern gilt frame - the original canvas can be seen from the back. 

Richter dam was born in the northern Bohemian village of Warnsdorf, which at that time belonged to Austria-Hungary and today to the Czech Republic. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague where he was a pupil of the painter and graphic artist Heinrich Jakesch. Richter-Damm moved to Munich and worked as a student in the studio of Ludwig von Löfftz. After completing his training, Richter-Damm mainly lived and worked in Munich.

From 1927 he was a member of the Reich Association of Visual Artists of Germany.The focus of Richter-Damm's work is landscapes, genre scenes, still lifes and portraits. His motives he found mostly in Upper Bavaria. The landscape of the Alps and the foothills of the Alps are as much a part of it as are the people living there in their typical national costume. Richter-Damm is influenced by the Munich School and is shaped by naturalism
