Description: Bianchi's early paintings still demonstrate a late romanticist character that he was to later lose by the end of the 1860's. In 1866, he won the competition for the Pensionato Oggione, enabling him to work in Venice, Rome, and Paris for extended periods. At that time Bianchi discovered the possibilities of painting en plein air. He became most successful with his Venice paintings, focusing largely on atmospheric sensation. The view of "Place de Clichy on a rainy day" is a fine example of this style.

CHRISTIAN LUDWIG BOKELMANN, AFTER THE FIRE, oil on canvas, 119.5 x 163.5 cm

Lot 1562: CHRISTIAN LUDWIG BOKELMANN, AFTER THE FIRE, oil on canvas, 119.5 x 163.5 cm

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: After having trained as a business man, Christian Ludwig Bokelmann attended the Düsseldorf Art Academy between 1868 and 1871. In 1892, he became professor of genre and portrait painting at the academy in Karlsruhe and one year later at the academy in Berlin. After the artist's death in the following year his estate was sold over the course of several auctions by J.M. Heberle (H. Lempertz' Söhne), in Cologne and Berlin. His early works were influenced by the largely humourous paintings of Ludwig Knaus and Benjamin Vautier. However, from the mid the 70's onwards, Bockelmann developed an increasingly serious style which was concerned predominantly with socio-critical subjects and attracted international attention and acclaim. Among some of his more famous works is the „Broken Bank", housed in the Milwaukee Art Museum. Our painting depicts the distress and helplessness of the residents of a burning house and the willingness of their neighbours to aid, executed in his short phase as professor at Karlsruhe.

FERDINAND BRÜTT, IN FRONT OF THE JUDGES, oil on canvas, 80 x 115 cm

Lot 1567: FERDINAND BRÜTT, IN FRONT OF THE JUDGES, oil on canvas, 80 x 115 cm

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Verso most likely written by the artist himself: Vor den Richtern F. Brütt (Before the Judges) Exhibition Label Munich Glaspalast No. 1164 (year?) In Germany, Brütt was possibly the first painter of both commercial and social life in stock exchanges, banks and law courts in the city. He was most successful with his court paintings in which he combined realistic aspects with the impressionistic tendencies of the time. This painting belongs to a series of court pictures that Brütt created in the 1890's, among which is the large-scale work "Die Stunde der Entscheidung im Gerichtssaal" (The Hour of Decision in the Court of Law) (100x140cm), dated 1892 and belonging to the Neue Pinakothek, Munich, since its purchase during the Glaspalast exhibition of the same year. The court paintings are based upon Brütt's jury duties and are well-observed documents of the time. His interests however are also directed towards purely aesthetic qualities such as the play of light in the interior and its artistic possibilities. Ferdinand Brütt was born in Hamburg in 1849. After his schooling in Hamburg and Weimar, he settled in Düsseldorf in 1876 where he remained until 1898. During that year he joined the artistic community in Kronberg/Taunus.

ALBERT VON KELLER, PORTRAIT OF A LADY WITH A FUR STOLE, oil on canvas, 111.5 x 89.5 cm (oval)

Lot 1568: ALBERT VON KELLER, PORTRAIT OF A LADY WITH A FUR STOLE, oil on canvas, 111.5 x 89.5 cm (oval)

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Dated 1907, this portrait of a lady with a fur stole was painted by Albert von Keller at a time when he was plagued by personal tragedy, his son and wife having died within the years of 1906-07. However, his artistic success arrived soon after. In 1908, the Munich Secession honoured him with a retrospective exhibition of 150 paintings, two years later he was awarded the Russian order of St. Stanislas, and upon the renovation of the Neue Pinakotek, Munich, in 1914, no less than 20 of his paintings were accepted into the permanent collection. Albert von Keller's entire oeuvre is centered on the portrayal of women. This theme fascinated him his entire life, either in commissioned, conventional portraits like the stunning picture of the Russian Tsarina Alexandra Feodorowna from 1896, or the depiction of a nude. Almost rarities are the portrayals of elegant women in opulent or intimate surroundings, often in enticing poses. In the present painting, the artist combines the representative character with a direct and natural interpretation of the unknown lady. Dominating are the strong red and pink shades, the delicate green of the background providing a surprising contrast.
