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.

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.

Description:
Carl Spitzweg 1808 München - 1885 MünchenBub und Mädchen im Kornfeld. Um 1840.Oil on thin board, laminated on board. Wichmann 147. 21 x 17.7 cm (8.2 x 6.9 in).

[CB].PROVENANCE: Estate of Conservator Pachmann (verso with inscription).Galerie Pertsch, Heidelberg, 1983.Gemäldegalerie von Vértes, Munich, 1984 (with gallery certificate).Private ownership West Germany. Carl Spitzweg (also Karl Spitzweg) was born on 5 February, 1808, in Unterpfaffenhofen, Bavaria. He finished his education at the humanistic Gymnasium in 1825. He then studied pharmacy at the university in Munich. In 1832, Spitzweg completed his studies with distinction. Because of a long period of illness, he gave up his career and dedicated himself to painting from then on, painting copies od works in the Alte Pinakothek in Munich.He also maintained friendships with painters such as Christian Morgenstern, Eduard Schleich the Elder, Dietrich Langko, and Friedrich Voltz. In 1835, he became a member of the Art Association of Munich. Two years later, he sold his first paintings. Spitzweg found inspiration during his many educational journeys to places such as Salzburg, Bozen, Meran, Venice and Dalmatia. Spitzweg started a life long friendship with Moritz von Schwind in 1847.He and Schwind visited the World Fair in Paris together in 1851. While visiting London in that year, he was fascinated by the works of John Constable and William Turner. Around 1860, he started seeing some success. In 1865, Spitzweg received the Bavarian Royal Merit Order of St. Michael. In 1868, he was inducted as an honorary member of the Academy of Visual Arts, though he had never attended an art academy himself. He produced many humoristic pictures in the 'Fliegende Blätter' beginning in 1844. In these small format works, he represented the world of the German everyman with loving humor and indulgence as the Biedermeier ideal of 'the good ole days.' 'Der arme Poet' ('The Poor Poet') from 1839 best represents his technical sophistication and unmistakable style. Carl Spitzweg died on September 23, 1885, in Munich.

Description:
Lot 1649: Carl Spitzweg, The Yawning Monk Carl Spitzweg (1808-1885) Description: Although Carl Spitzweg displayed artistic talent from a very young age, according to his father's wishes he began an apprenticeship with the Königlich-Bayerische-Hofapotheke (Bavarian court apothecary) in Munich. He then began studying chemistry, pharmacy and botany at the University of Munich in 1830 and finished with honours. However, in 1833 he decided to give up his career as a pharmacist to devote himself entirely to his passion for painting. He became a member of the Munich art association in 1835 and travelled to Dalmatia, Venice, Paris, London, Antwerp, Frankfurt and Heidelberg. He began making illustrations for the comical weekly illustrated “Fliegende Blätter” in 1844.A second version of this work exists which is also published under the title “The Yawning Monk” (Der gähnende Mönch). Wichmann proposes this to be a second version, painted shortly after the prime which is illustrated in the catalogue raisonné. The preparatory sketch for this composition (pencil on paper, 14 x 18 cm) is found in Spitzweg's 1862 sketchbook.“The Yawning Monk” belongs to a series of works illustrating the lives of various hermits, monks and holy men. The pieces depict neither loneliness nor melancholy, but rather represent the contemplative freedom that comes with an independent life. Under Spitzweg's finely nuanced light, the somewhat bare but bright interior becomes a place of calm, contemplation and security.Large views in small formats like the present work were a result of Spitzweg's experimentation with avant-garde techniques during the 1860s. This piece was painted in 1870, making it one of Spitzweg's later works.With a confirmation of authenticity and estate stamp of Otto Spitzweg (1843 - 1921), the artist's nephew, to the reverse.
