Description:
Lot 1543: Adolf Schreyer, Arabian Horseman by a Ford (1828-1899) Signed lower right: ad. SchreyerAdolf Schreyer was born in Frankfurt am Main and began his tutoring at the Städelsches Kunstinstitut at the age of 15. His teachers there included the genre painter Jakob Becker and the history painter Johann David Passavant. Horses were a favourite motif of his from the very beginning, and were to become the central subject of his oeuvre. Schreyer moved to Paris in 1861 and from there took a sojourn to Northern Africa, visiting the recently conquered country of Algeria as well as other French colonial territories. This contact with Arabian culture had a profound effect on the artist, with Oriental motifs such as the present and following works dominating his oeuvre from that time onward. The French Orientalists also had a particularly strong influence on Schreyer - especially Eugène Fromentin's depictions of Algeria - which explains why Arabian motifs are to be found in his works even before his North African sojourn.These colourful and atmospheric paintings were well-suited to the artistic tastes of the era, and Schreyer soon received considerable public praise. His works were regularly shown and awarded with prizes in large exhibitions, and he himself was celebrated as "Lord of the Paris Salon". We would like to thank Dr. Christoph Andreas for confirming the authenticity of this work after first-hand examination. Private ownership, Germany. 81 x 131 cm Oil on canvas

Gallery, Frankfurt am Main, for his kind support. Owing to his exotic motifs Adolf Schreyer has had a lastig effect on European painting; celebrated by the critics of his time for his talent of rendering a dramatic narrative style in realistic representation. He is especially admired for his accomplished way of directly affecting the viewer by the atmosphere generated in his paintings, whether it is the blazing desert sun or a freezing winterscape. By some he is today even regarded as percursor of German Ismpressionism. In 1828 Adolf Schreyer was born in Frankfurt am Main as son to a respected family, providing him with the privilege of a good education and a life of frequent travel. His thirst for knowledge of exotic topics led him to Russia, Asia Minor, and North Africa. He was fascinated by the people and their indigenous way of life, especially by the coexistence of Arabian horses and their riders. Schreyer took the portrayal of horses to extraordinary levels, attracting international attention, especially in France and the USA.

Description:
Auction Announcement on December 3, 2015 10:45 am The correct title of the work is ‘Prussian Hussars Attacking Artillery’’’’ Literature Friedrich von Boetticher, Malerwerke des Neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, 2. Band, Leipzig 1901, p. 653, no. 4 Adolph Schreyer was one of the most celebrated German artists of the 19th century. The recipient of numerous awards and honors and a favored artist of the aristocratic circles of Germany as well as the Gilded Age families in America. One of the most successful members of the so called “Dusseldorf” school, Schreyer showed great promise as an artist in his early training especially in the category of equine painting. Indeed, the main body of his oeuvre in the 1860s is dedicated to Orientalist subject matter, and his portrayal of Arab horseman in the deserts of North Africa and beyond were highly in demand. While much of his military campaigns centered on the Crimean War, this composition features an episode from the Baden Revolution of 1848-1849. The early part of Schreyer’’’’s career is even more interesting. After settling in Vienna, as he was chosen to accompany the Austrian Prince’’’’s regiment as an artist-report assigned to cover the Crimean War which raged from 1853-1856. The present work, dated, 1854, is likely an episode from the Crimean War. This large scale painting reveals Schreyer’’’’s technical bravura in constructing the complex composition. Schreyer deftly shows the pushing of the regiment up a dusty plain to the overlook. The chaotic jumble of horses’’’’ bodies in the foreground highlights his amazing technical mastery of equine bodies but also intensifies the drama and urgency of the scene. Christian Adolf Schreyer (1828-1899) The painter Christian Adolf Schreyer, born in Frankfurt, received his artistic training at the Städel School and attended, amongst others, the classes of Jakob Becker (1810-1872) and Johann David Passavant (1787-1861). From 1854 to 1856, he voluntarily joined the Austrian army in the Crimean War, which was followed by a number of private journeys to Hungary, Romania and Russia. Schreyer lived in Paris from 1861 to 1870 and organized further extensive tours to Algiers and the Middle East. In 1872, the painter finally settled in Kronberg, Germany. Christian Adolf Schreyer is highly appreciated for his depictions of horse and battle scenes and achieved great successes with his ‘Orientalist paintings’’’’. His works are now in the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Musée de Luxembourg, the Kunsthalle in Hamburg and the Städel Museum in Frankfurt. Condition Lined. The paint surface is stable and has good impasto. There is slight craquelure visible in the sky.
