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.
