Alfred Justitz Sold at Auction Prices

Painter

Alfréd Justitz (19 July 1879 in Nová Cerekev – 9 February 1934 in Bratislava) was a Czech Modernist painter and illustrator.

He was one of three sons born into a Jewish family; their father was a doctor and their mother a homemaker.[1] His first contact with art came in Jihlava, where he met the aspiring painter Roman Havelka [cs], who was two years his senior.

As a result, Justitz decided to pursue a creative career and began by studying architecture at the Czech Technical University in Prague with Professor Jan Kotera.[1] He transferred to the Academy of Fine Arts, where he studied with Maximilian Pirner and František Thiele (1868-1945). After that, he worked with Ludwig Schmid-Reutte in Karlsruhe and Wilhelm Trübner in Berlin.[2]

In 1910, he visited Paris, where he was influenced by the works of Paul Cézanne and Honoré Daumier. From 1918 to 1924, he exhibited with "Tvrdošíjní", a group of mostly young, modern artists. Later, he would create posters for galleries and stores. In 1927, he produced illustrations for the Czech edition of Notre Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. The following year, he joined the Mánes Union of Fine Arts.[2]

In addition to painting, Justitz loved dogs and was an enthusiastic promoter and breeder of boxers. He became a trustee of the "CeskoMoravská Kynologická Unie" (a kennel club), where he was put in charge of maintaining the breeding records. He was also an active Freemason of the lodge "Sibi et Posteris" in Prague.[citation needed]

He died at a hospital in Bratislava, after a long illness. His ashes were returned to his hometown and placed in an urn at the Jewish cemetery. The Masonic Lodge provided support for his widow Anna, but she never recovered from his death. She committed suicide by poisoning not long after the German Occupation in 1939, when the threat of the Nazis to Jews was obvious.[1]

      ALFRED JUSTITZ 1879 - 1934 - BOUQUET IN A VASE

      Est: -

      Alfred Justitz's work was based on knowledge of painting traditions and tendencies of Czech and European painting. Justitz was a solitaire from the beginning, but the Tvrdošíjní group was very close to him. He exhibited with them as a guest in 1921 and 1923 and became friends with Václav Špála. His bouquet in a vase expresses sensuality and natural aesthetics, in Alfred Justitz's conception it is a call to nature and an expression of the desire to escape. The ingenious artistic shortcut omits excessive descriptiveness and creates an impressive color contrast full of life. Technique: Oil on plywood, Signed: Lower right "A justitz"
