              May. 17, 2024

              Alexander Max Koester: Four Ducks in the Reeds

              Est: €20,000 - €30,000

              KOESTER, ALEXANDER MAX 1864 Bergneustadt - 1932 Munich Title: Four Ducks in the Reeds. Date: Ca. 1910-20. Technique: Oil on canvas. Measurement: 45.5 x 76.5cm. Notation: Signed lower left: "A. Koester". Frame: Framed. Provenance: Private ownership, Germany. In addition to the few portraits and genre paintings he created, the painter Alexander Koester is known for his atmospheric landscapes, but above all for his duck paintings. He was born in Neustadt (now Bergneustadt) in 1864 and initially completed an apprenticeship as a pharmacist near Colmar. As an art student, the painter from the Rhineland initially earned his living by painting portraits and genre paintings. After completing his art studies at the Karlsruhe Academy, Koester moved with his family to Klausen in South Tyrol in 1896. In Austria, he devoted himself primarily to studies of nature. It was at this time that Koester discovered the ducks that his father-in-law kept on the property as a subject. It was only when he moved to live with his wife's family in Klausen in South Tyrol that his interest in painting increasingly focussed on his lifelong main subject: the depiction of ducks. He found his motif directly in the domestic environment; in countless studies, the animals were captured in a wide variety of situations. The painter made his first public appearance in 1899 at the Grosse Beriner Kunstausstellung, where the exhibited ducks immediately attracted attention, making Koester a recognised and highly decorated artist at the turn of the century. The painterly animal, which would occupy him for the next 40 years, thus became the main object of study in his artistic oeuvre. The depiction of ducks is represented in many hundreds of studies, which were captured in pencil, charcoal, pastel, and oil. From 1908, Koester increasingly travelled to the Lake Constance region to paint large expanses of water in calm or stormy weather, sun and shade to complement the ducks. After Klausen was declared a war zone during the First World War, the artist moved to Munich and settled in Dießen am Ammersee. Although from then on he also devoted himself to depicting lakeside landscapes and floral still lifes, the subject of ducks continued to play a major role in his artistic work until his death. The painter is known not least under the name "Enten-Koester". In addition to the anatomically correct depiction of the animals, Koester was particularly interested in depicting the changing incidence of light on the water. The depiction of the iridescent play of light falling harmoniously on the water and the ducks' plumage is thus recurring and characteristic.

Frame: Framed. Literature: cf.: R. Stein, H. Koester: Alexander Koester 1864-1932. Leben und Werk, Recklinghausen 1988, cat. rais. no. 624. Provenance: Private ownership, Germany. Coming from the Karlsruhe school of painting around Carl Heinrich Hoff and Leopold Graf von Kalckreuth, Alexander Koester gained his first experiences as a genre and landscape painter. He distinguished himself early on with his impasto and broad brushstrokes, which he quickly developed into his lively, impressionistic, and unmistakable style of painting. Today he is particularly known for his life's theme of ducks, to which he devoted himself in a large number of lively and mostly large-format depictions. He found this theme during his early years in the late 19th century when he moved into his first studio as a freelance painter in Klausen in South Tyrol. Initially still thematically oriented towards Franz von Defregger, his works became more and more individual and discovered the diverse worlds on the shore. Although mostly depicting spontaneous situations of waterfowl, his works are meticulously prepared with drawings and set the ducks in a differentiated scene. Koester developed his depictions of the animals on the glittering water in the play of light and shadow of the reeds from pure study objects into his unmistakable trademark. From 1925, he built a studio house in Dießen am Ammersee, which also included an extensive garden with duck ponds. The work shown here was created while he was still in South Tyrol, which he had to leave with his wife in 1914 after the political changes. It is an early example of his art, which was already held in high esteem by contemporaries and which gave him the nickname "Enten-Koester".

Alexander Koester, son of a stocking manufacturer, completed a pharmacist’s apprenticeship at the request of his parents. Upon its completion, however, he did not take on his learned profession, but enrolled at the Karlsruhe Academy. There, under Karl Hoff and Claus Meyer, he graduated from his studies of art in 1885. He went on numerous trips and was soon able to secure his livelihood with his portrait and genre painting. In 1896 he moved to the South Tyrolean resort of Klausen, where ultimately his most fruitful period of creativity began, and he joined the ‘Klausner Kunstkolonie’. When painting in nature, he quickly discovered ducks as the preferred motif for his paintings. He observed these animals intensely to capture in his pictures the way in which the sun’s rays are reflected on their plumage. The resulting dynamic, atmospheric compositions ensured that success of this varied pictorial motif. Even during his lifetime, his works gained great popularity, and numerous reproductions exist. For example, the present lot was selected for the advertising of a four-colour print by Gebrüder Schmidt, Buch- und Steindruckfarben-Fabrik and illustrated in Theodor Goebel, Graphische Künste der Gegenwart, Stuttgart 1902. Koester was an outstanding representative of 19th century painting and was able to capture the liveliness of the ducks in his works with expressive brushstrokes.

              ALEXANDER KOESTER (Bergneustadt 1864–1932 Munich) Ducks. Oil on canvas. Signed lower right: A. KOESTER. 63.3 × 106.3 cm. Provenance: European private collection. Our thanks to Herr Dr Christoph Gasser of the Stadtmuseum Klausen (Museo Civico di Chiusa) for his assistance in cataloguing this work. --------------- ALEXANDER KOESTER (Bergneustadt 1864–1932 München) Enten. Öl auf Leinwand. Unten rechts signiert: A. KOESTER. 63,3 × 106,3 cm. Provenienz: Europäischer Privatbesitz. Gleich neun Enten und Erpel sind auf diesem attraktiven Querformat des Tiermalers Alexander Koester dargestellt. Dicht gedrängt im Pulk streben die Enten nach links im Bild über den sonnenbeschienenen Boden, Sonne und Schatten bilden ein abwechslungsreiches Spiel auf dem glänzenden Gefieder der Wasservögel. Koester, der sich im Laufe seiner Schaffensphase auf das Malen von Enten spezialisierte, gelingt es in dem hier vorliegenden Gemälde seine künstlerischen Qualitäten als Entenmaler und Meister der Lichtmalerei zum Ausdruck zu bringen. Diese, im Werk Koesters seltene Bildkomposition mit zahlreichen Enten an Land, wird in vergleichbaren Gemälden des Künstlers aufgegriffen (siehe Ruth Stein und Hans Koester: Alexander Koester 1864–1932. Leben und Werk, Recklinghausen 1988, Abb. 908 und 910). Das hier angebotene Gemälde besticht nicht nur durch sein attraktives Querformat, sondern auch durch die ausgezeichnete Art und Weise, in der Koester das Lichtspiel im Gefieder der Tiere mit grobem Pinselduktus auf die Leinwand bringt. Schon zu Lebzeiten Koesters, insbesondere nach der ersten Ausstellung seiner Entendarstellungen 1899 in Berlin, erfreuten sich dessen Entenbilder stets grosser Beliebtheit und auch heute noch bestechen Koesters Gemälde durch ihre Farbenkraft und die lebensbejahenden Motive. Wir danken Herrn Dr. Christoph Gasser vom Stadtmuseum Klausen (Museo Civico di Chiusa) für die Mithilfe bei der Katalogisierung dieses Werkes. ---------------

Frame: Framed. Literature: cf.: R. Stein, H. Koester: Alexander Koester 1864-1932. Leben und Werk, Recklinghausen 1988, cat. rais. no. 624. Provenance: Private ownership, Germany. Coming from the Karlsruhe school of painting around Carl Heinrich Hoff and Leopold Graf von Kalckreuth, Alexander Koester gained his first experiences as a genre and landscape painter. He distinguished himself early on with his impasto and broad brushstrokes, which he quickly developed into his lively, impressionistic, and unmistakable style of painting. Today he is particularly known for his life's theme of ducks, to which he devoted himself in a large number of lively and mostly large-format depictions. He found this theme during his early years in the late 19th century when he moved into his first studio as a freelance painter in Klausen in South Tyrol. Initially still thematically oriented towards Franz von Defregger, his works became more and more individual and discovered the diverse worlds on the shore. Although mostly depicting spontaneous situations of waterfowl, his works are meticulously prepared with drawings and set the ducks in a differentiated scene. Koester developed his depictions of the animals on the glittering water in the play of light and shadow of the reeds from pure study objects into his unmistakable trademark. From 1925, he built a studio house in Dießen am Ammersee, which also included an extensive garden with duck ponds. The work shown here was created while he was still in South Tyrol, which he had to leave with his wife in 1914 after the political changes. It is an early example of his art, which was already held in high esteem by contemporaries and which gave him the nickname "Enten-Koester". Explanations to the Catalogue

              Koester, Alexander

              Est: €6,000 - €9,000

              Koester, Alexander 1864 Neustadt - 1932 Munich. Coffee break. Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. H 78, W 94 cm (support). Elaborate frame. Mainly known for the numerous depictions of ducks in his works, Alexander Koester's pronounced preference for the duck motif led to the nickname «Enten-Koester (duck-Koester)». However, he also painted numerous other themes, such as still lifes, landscapes and interiors. Here we see two women and a little girl in a parlour, busy sewing and enjoying a coffee break. In an impressionistic manner, Koester captures the light-flooded parlour and provides an insight into everyday life at the turn of the century. The loving gaze of mother to child lends the scene a cosy and touching atmosphere. He often depicted the same subjects with only a few modifications. The present work is a variation on Alexander Koester's painting «Kaffeepause (coffee break)», recorded under catalogue raisonné 17, which was sold at auction at Christie's New York in 1992 (lot 79) for 100.000 US Dollars. A comparison of the two paintings shows only few differences. Composition, colour palette and signature are typical of the artist's genre paintings of the period between 1890 and 1898. Provenance: private collection Northern Black Forest in third generation. Catalogue raisonné: Stein/Koester 17 (cf.). Condition report: Very good overall impression. Slight surface soiling, margins minimally rubbed from framing, here and there barely noticeable white shrinking cracks. DEUTSCH: Koester, Alexander 1864 Neustadt - 1932 München. Kaffeepause. Öl auf Leinwand. U.r. sign. H. 78, B. 94 cm (Bildträger). Prunkrahmen. Eigentlich ist Alexander Koester wegen der Vielzahl an Darstellungen von Enten in seinen Werken bekannt. Die ausgeprägte Vorliebe für das Entenmotiv führte zu dem Beinamen «Enten-Koester». Er malte aber auch zahlreiche andere Motive, wie Stillleben, Landschaften und Interieure. Hier sehen wir zwei Frauen und ein kleines Mädchen in einer Stube, die mit Näharbeiten beschäftigt sind und sich eine Kaffeepause gönnen. In impressionistischer Manier fängt Koester die lichtdurchflutete Stube ein und gibt Einblick in das Alltagsleben der Jahrhundertwende. Der liebevolle Blick von Mutter zum Kind verleiht der Szene eine heimelige und empfindsame Atmosphäre. Des Öfteren stellte er die gleichen Sujets mit nur wenigen Unterschieden dar. Das vorliegende Werk ist eine Variation zu dem unter WVZ 17 erfassten Gemälde «Kaffeepause» von Alexander Koester, welches im Jahr 1992 bei Christie's in New York (Los 79) für 100.000 US Dollar versteigert wurde. Ein Vergleich der beiden Arbeiten zeigt nur wenige Abweichungen. Komposition, Farbpalette und Signatur sind typisch für die Genregemälde des Künstlers in der Zeit zwischen 1890 und 1898. Provenienz: Privatsammlung Nordschwarzwald in dritter Generation. Werkverzeichnis: Stein/Koester 17 (vgl.). Zustandsbericht: Sehr guter Gesamteindruck. Leichte Oberflächenverschmutzung, Bildränder rahmungsbedingt min. ber., stellenweise kaum merkliche Frühschwundrisse.

Notation: Signed lower right: A. Koester. Frame: Framed. Verso: Inscribed on frame and stretcher: "Im Herbstgrase. Alexander Koester. Klausen Tyrol". Provenance: Private ownership, Germany When Impressionism began to develop, the genre of historical subjects in painting was in decline. The new trend in art turned more and more to the depiction of contemporary subjects, such as pubs, railway stations, views of stands and scenes from private and social life. The subjects that were to become dominant from then on tended to derive from bourgeois society and went hand in hand with the development of the leisure activities of wealthy citizens. Examples of this are the parties on the banks of the Seine painted by Renoir and Monet or bathing in Parisian suburbs. The impressionists were simply not interested in work and the social dimension it touched. One of the most important representatives of the German counterpart of the movement was the painter Alexander Koester. His oeuvre is as multifaceted as that of his French colleagues. Nevertheless, when the name "Koester" is mentioned, images of a wide variety of ducks, painted in a light and airy manner, appear in one's mind. This fusion, so emblematic of his personal style, was celebrated by the German Impressionist especially in recent times. Koester painted his duck subjects in a wide range of variations that delighted the artist's audience even during his lifetime. The surface of the water in combination with the refraction of light and its reflections repeatedly tempted Koester to put his artistic skills to the test and to perfect them - and yet he never tired of this subject. Initially striving to depict landscapes, their true moods in the interplay of the respective daylight and the fleetingness of the moment, Koester arrived at his henceforth new favourite motif: ducks. The present painting can be placed in the canon of the impressionist's most important depictions. He shows us six ducks seeking closeness to each other in a loving manner. The heads of the individual ducks touch lightly. They are surrounded by various flowers that softly frame the flock. The airy and impasto application of paint, so characteristic of the Impressionist period, speaks clearly again from the present painting: the ducks' plumage shines with three-dimensionality and depth; the flowers stand out through their colourfulness and impasto application. The soft source of light that seems to come from the upper right corner of the painting enhances the intimate almost familiar moment of the flock of ducks. Koester's depictions of ducks radiate purity and tranquillity. They ask the viewer to pause and, during the viewing process, kindle a longing for times past - times when man was more in tune with the primal - nature. Even then, his idyllic paintings formed a counter-design, namely to that of Industrialisation. Contrary to what one might think, they have not lost any of their relevance today - on the contrary: in times of digitalisation, in which there is almost constant talk of "process optimisation" of all kinds; in times that scream higher, further, better, Koester's ducks offer a place of happy being. They allow the viewer to escape, grant a place where one may turn inwards and form a counterweight to the driven attitude of our accelerated society. Precisely for this reason, his duck subjects gain even more greatness in their art-historical significance than ever before. Explanations to the Catalogue
