Description:
Sebastian Wegmayr (Vienna 1776–1857) Two bouquets of flowers with butterflies, both signed S. Wegmayr, oil on panel, each 69 x 54 cm, framed, cradled, (2) (Rei) Sebastian Wegmayr, a gifted young men from a popular background, was a student at the Academy of Arts in Vienna where he specialized in still lives paintings. Starting as an assistant to his teacher J. B. Drechsler he subsequently replaced him there, teaching his favourite subject until his retirement in 1851. His influence was perceptible even after he had left the Academy as many of his preparatory drawings were used in the following years as teaching material. Wegmayr\’s works were created in the first half of the 19th century, long before the new style of flower painting - dedicated to the representation of the flora outside- emerged. In his oeuvre, the classical, Flemish way is still clearly visible. As his predecessor did, Wegmayr carefully studied the subjects of this still lives and indeed the exact details of the flowers and branches represented here are a testimony of the attention payed by the painter to the flora. The rich, high bouquets of his paintings stand out before simple dark backgrounds, their lavishness accentuated by the plain glass vases and marble tables they are presented on. Specialist: Mag.

Counterpart to lot 202

Provenance:

The property of an old Austrian aristocratic family.

Sebastian Wegmayr was one of the most famous Viennese flower painters of the first half of the 19th century. He studied flower painting at the Vienna Academy from 1797 to 1805. From 1807 to 1811 he was the assistant to his teacher, Johann Baptist Dreschler, at the Academy\’\’\’\’s flower painting class. Wegmayr succeeded Dreschler as professor of flower painting in 1812, a position he held until 1850. Gerbert and Marianne Frodl, in their book Die Blumenmalerei in Wien (Vienna 2010, p.72), write of Wegmayr: \“The representative bouquet...dominated his creative works almost exclusively for decades. He persevered in this respect, yet on the other hand, he developed a painterly signature, which frequently set him clearly apart from any other painters of his subject, such as Josef Nigg or Franz Xavier Petter, and which, in a certain sense, one could call expressive. Wegmayr\’\’\’\’s compositions consist of larger shapes, the outlines of the blooms and the big herbaceous leaves appearing for the most part firm and, especially in his later works, sharp edged and hard…He preferred large-flowered, brightly coloured exotic hot-house plants, whose characteristics shaped the appearance of the painting. In dramatic contrast to these distinctive, individual shapes, he arranged bouquets against uniformly dark, even black, backgrounds, lending a particularly decorative tone to the pictures, sometimes extending beyond the bourgeois…\”
