“Banks of the Tiber near Acqua Acetos” is one of the most beautiful works from Richter’s early career. The painting has been done according to classical landscape principles: the river flows diagonally into the distance, on the left, the trees with their carefully painted foliage form a curtain. In the background we see the jagged lines of foothills but on the horizon, the blue contours of mountains. The landscape is very harmonious in its calm and noble majesty and the flow of lines and colours.
