        Nov. 10, 2021

        JOSEPH KLEITSCH (Hungary, 1882-United States, 1931). "The blind and beggar", 1908. Oil on canvas.

        Est: €60,000 - €70,000

        JOSEPH KLEITSCH (Hungary, 1882-United States, 1931). "The blind and beggar", 1908. Oil on canvas. Attached certificate issued by Redan Hughes. Presents faults and restorations in the frame. Signed, dated and located (Mexico), in the lower right corner. Measurements: 150 x 105.5 cm; 176 x 136 cm (frame). Starring a young lazarillo and an elderly beggar, this work captures the viewer's attention through a realistic language that uses a stark scene, which specifies poverty, and the disadvantaged situation of both characters, a child and an old man, who are on the margins of the working population, thus being the most vulnerable to poverty. Both the subject matter and the technical style of the work are aesthetically close to the aesthetic characteristics in vogue during the 19th century in the United States. This was a place where an artistic tradition linked to portraiture had developed. In addition, the progress of the industrial revolution provoked the birth of new social classes, the definition of these, and a social situation of injustice and generalized poverty. This atmosphere was picked up by different artists, who used their art as an instrument of social criticism. An example of this was the literature of Mark Twain, or the art of some of the painters who from 1830 onwards embraced the representation of the genre scene, motivated above all by the growing illustration, newspapers and magazines, which accustomed the public to scenes of everyday life. Of Hungarian origin, Joseph Kleitsch, was born in a region now belonging to Romania. His interest in art began at an early age, as he started painting at the age of seven. He later pursued his artistic training in Budapest, Munich and Paris. In 1912, Kleitsch emigrated to the United States, settling in the city of Chicago. Influenced by his visits to the famous museums of Europe, Kleitsch developed a taste for portraiture and figurative painting, which earned him the recognition of high society. Upon moving to California, his works underwent an aesthetic shift, in which the painter became interested in capturing the bright light and diverse landscape of his new surroundings. In 1920, Kleitsch settled permanently in the artists' village of Laguna Beach, becoming an important resident of the Laguna Beach Artists Colony, where he opened his own gallery. Arthur Millier, a Los Angeles Times commentator, wrote of Kleitsch: "He was a born colorist; he seemed to play on canvas with the abandon of a gypsy violinist." Today his works are part of important collections, both private and public, highlighting art spaces such as; Joseph Kleitsch Fine Art, Beverly Hills, Irvine Museum, in California, Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California, Pasadena Museum of California Art, in California, and Fleischer Museum, in Scottsdale, Arizona, among many others.

Trenton, The Golden Twenties: Portraits & Figure Paintings by Joseph Kleitsch, Pasadena, Pasadena Museum of California Art, 2017, pp. 68–69, full page color illustration.We are grateful to Patricia Trenton, Ph.D., Independent Art Historian/Curator, for her assistance with this essay.Joseph Kleitsch's keen sense of detail enabled him to capture an individual's demeanor and expression on canvas. He was unique among his peers for his bravura brushwork and for his ability to infuse the psychological nuances complimenting the outward appearances. The artist also relied on settings and props to help convey the status and personality of his sitters. In his non-commissioned portrayals of friends and relatives, individual expression and freedom of thought and action are more sharply discernible. These spontaneously rendered portraits were of people he knew well; their mannerisms and personalities were more familiar, which enabled him to personalize the paintings, such as his portrait of his cousin William Kleitsch.William Kleitsch is portrayed here as an attractive, sporty, self-confident individual. The painting itself reflects the physicality and strength of the sitter, who is posed as a successful businessman. The conservative suit—complete with a colorful, bold, patterned cravat and a starched, collared shirt—further reinforces his business-like demeanor, and the cigarette in his right hand speaks to his masculinity. William was a member of the Kleitsch family that settled in Cincinnati; but it is possible that the artist painted his cousin's portrait when he took his first wife, Emma, to reside there with her family just prior to his move to Mexico in 1911. William later worked in Chicago, so the portrait could have been painted there. The inscription on the back of a photograph of William with his cousins the Vollmers from Cincinnati and Joseph Kleitsch led to the identification of this unknown subject.
