Description:
Lot 1534: Carl Spitzweg, Romantic Landscape / Breton Landscape With estate stamp to the reverse.Carl Spitzweg travelled to France with his friend Eduard Schleich in late 1850/1851. They were particularly interested in the work of the Barbizon School, and certain traces of their influence can be discerned in the present work. This could be the reason the piece was first entitled “Bretonische Landschaft” (Breton Landscape) in Wichmann's catalogue raisonné. He found a study relating to this work, which was made on a sojourn to Franconia in 1849. However, he dates the work to the Paris period of 1851/52 or slightly after. This perfectly balanced, almost square composition depicting a wide panorama in central perspective is arguably among the finest of Spitzweg's early works. The piece already displays first indications of the flickering style of brushwork which the artist was to develop independently in the following years. Provenance: Prof. Fr. J.

Description:
Description: Inscribed lower left: S in a rhombusThis work shows a view of a mountainous landscape seen, as with many of Spitzweg's works, from what could be referred to as a “fortunate angle”. On the left side we see a small chapel, a so-called “marterl” and a bench tucked in beside a tree-lined rock face. On the right, a path winds its way towards a stone outcrop in the background and the image opens up to show the blue sky dotted with white, fluffy clouds. A small stream runs through the centre of the painting and we see a boy and girl, who Spitzweg and Wichmann refer to as schoolchildren, walking beside it. Carl Spitzweg began to teach himself to paint during his apprenticeship as a chemist and astonishingly went on to become one of the most significant German artists of the 19th century. This was thanks not only to his exceptional talent in capturing natural phenomena such as varying light conditions, times of the day and seasons, but also his empathetic, and often humorous, observations of human kind. There was almost no other German artist of this era so well able to combine man and nature, figures in landscapes, to such a compact and harmonious whole as Spitzweg. His works brought joy to many collectors even during his lifetime. This piece, which has been kept in family ownership for almost 100 years and which Wichmann dates to 1865, is a charming and characteristic example. Notes: VAT: Margin scheme Provenance: Private ownership, Stuttgart, since the 1920s. Dimensions: 32 x 23 cm Artist or Maker: Carl Spitzweg Exhibited: Haus der Kunst, Munich 1985, exhibition catalogue p. 499, no. 718.

Description:
Karl Spitzweg (Munich 1808–1885)Old Man on a Bench, rhombus signature lower right, circa 1865, oilon panel, 29 x 14.2 cm, framed (behind glass), (Rei) Illustrated and catalogued in:Siegfried Wichmann, Carl Spitzweg, Verzeichnis der Werke, Gemäldeund Aquarelle, published by Belser, Stuttgart, 2002, p. 291, no.579G. Roennefahrt, Carl Spitzweg, Beschreibendes Verzeichnis seinerGemälde, Ölstudien und Aquarelle, Munich 1960, no. 971Provenance:Fischer, Lucerne, 21 - 25 June 1955, no. 2271, plate 26, titled “Alter Mann auf einer Ruhebank”,German private property.Carl Spitzweg was self-taught, giving up his studies of chemistry,botany and pharmacy and subsequent work as a pharmacist to finallyturn to painting. He was greatly renowned for his humorousdepictions of human nature. His friendship with Eduard Schleich,with whom he made many study trips to Italy, Germany, London andParis, significantly influenced his artistic representations oflandscapes decorated with rustic figures. Spitzweg had the abilityto bring together an exact observation of nature, its phenomena’’’’sand its play of light which enabled him to create a fascinatingatmospheric in his works. Thanks to his pharmaceutical and chemicaltraining, Spitzweg was able to mix his own paints and these had aspecial brilliance and durability, as is evident in the presentwork. Initially working in the style of the late Romantics,Spitzweg increasingly turned towards Impressionism, which alsochanged his method of applying colour. Glazed colours give way topastose textures. In the work here Spitzweg chose an elevated pointof view, depicting a plateau, where the old man sits on a bank.Although the viewer is not able to see the landscape behind theplateau, the endless breadth of the country is evoked by the man’’’’sfocused stare into the distance as well as the lower horizon line,freeing it from all constraints of time and space.
