Description:
Description: Edmund H. Osthaus (1858-1928) Two Setters on Point signed "Edmund Osthaus" lower right watercolor, 20 1/2 by 29 in. Edmund Henry Osthaus was born in Hildesheim, Germany, in 1858. He was the son of a prosperous farmer who subsequently immigrated to Toledo, Ohio. Osthaus studied at the Royal Academy of the Arts in Dusseldorf from 1874 to 1882 with Andreas Muller, Peter Jansen, E. von Gebhardt, Ernst Deger, and wildlife and landscape painter Christian Kroner. In 1883, after studying painting for six years, Edmund Osthaus became an instructor at the Toledo Academy of Fine Arts. He served as the director from 1886-1893, refining his painting technique and pursuing his passions: hunting and fishing. In 1893 Osthaus dedicated his full attention to painting, shooting, and field trials. He was a charter member of the National Field Trial Association, established in Newton, North Carolina, in 1895. \“Edmund Osthaus followed field trials from the fall prairie chicken trials in Canada to the important quail trials in the South in mid-winter, judging, sketching, and sometimes entering his dogs. He was a handsome, powerfully built man.\” His artistic talent combined with his love of dogs enabled him to capture the essence of the focused working dog while depicting them in precise anatomical detail. \“Any painter who paints for shooting men had better be a shooting man himself, for no one is more jealously critical of detail than the man who knows guns and dogs and game... Edmund Osthaus, who trained and shot over his own setters and pointers, transformed oil paint into dog flesh quivering under the stress of a point.\” Provenance: Davison B. Hawthorne Collection Literature: Kay and George Evans, "Dogs that Live Forever," Field & Stream, Vol. LXXV, No. 2, June 1970, pp. 234-240.

Edmund Henry Osthaus (American, 1858-1928) Harold Lloyd's Dogs, c. 1924 Oil on canvas 36-1/4 x 48 inches (92.1 x 121.9 cm) Signed lower left: Edmund Osthaus PROPERTY FROM A TEXAS MUSEUM PROVENANCE: The artist; The artist's son, gift from the above; Acquired by the present owner from the above. In 1975, Edmund Osthaus' son Franz wrote from his home in Los Angeles to a Texas museum, offering this painting for their collection: "I do have a very unusual example of his [my father's] ability which was completed about four years before his death in 1928. It is out of the ordinary because it consists of portraits of Harold Lloyd's Great Danes and St. Bernards, six dogs in total. . . I am enclosing a newspaper reproduction of this canvas, which appeared in the Los Angeles Times shortly after the picture was completed. Since this is the only copy I have, I would appreciate your returning it to me (Franz Osthaus, 516 North Wilcox Avenue, Los Angeles, California, 90004, letter dated February 1, 1975). The Museum was grateful to accept this large example from the brush of one of America's most celebrated dog painters. Born in Germany and raised in Ohio, Osthaus was a lifelong wildlife enthusiast, hunter and dog lover who settled in Los Angeles in 1911, where he painted dog portraits for many celebrities of various stripes. One of these stars was the actor, comedian, film director and producer, stuntman, screenwriter, Harold Lloyd, who was equally passionate about dogs. His home, "Greenacres" in Beverly Hills, was also home to scores of his beloved breeds. Although no documentation survives concerning the circumstances surrounding the production of this group portrait of six of Lloyd's dogs, the quality of the painting strongly suggests that the animals were painted from life, Osthaus' preferred manner of working throughout his career.
