          Jan. 20, 2024

          W. HECHT (*1843) after SCHWIND (*1804), Wieland the blacksmith, 1850, Etching

          Est: €750 - €1,000

          Wilhelm Hecht (1843 Ansbach - 1920 Linz/Danube) after Moritz von Schwind (1804 Vienna - 1871 Munich): Wieland the Blacksmith and the King's Daughter Badhilde, 1850, Etching Technique: Etching and Copper engraving on , rolled-on on Paper Inscription: At the lower part signed in the printing plate: "M. v. Schwind Fect / W. Hecht sct.". At the lower part inscribed in the printing plate: "Wieland der Schmied". Date: 1850 Description: Few artists of the 19th century indulged in bizarre fabulation as devotedly as Moritz von Schwind. His pictorial worlds, populated by fairy-tale creatures, indulge in grotesquely heightened embellishment that does not stop at either the characters or the surroundings. His Rübezahl is an apt example of this: the crotchety hermit with his lance beard and huge hercules club wanders through an enchanted forest in his clogs, in which every tree has as much character as Rübezahl himself. The gnarlier and more intricate, the better. This absorption in the confusion of lines, which condense into ever more complex structures, can also be found in the two other sheets shown here, and it is to Wilhelm Hecht's great credit that he has reproduced this way of telling a story with each individual line. In the sheet Wieland the Blacksmith it can be found in the rocks and in St Wolfgang's Church Building it is the lush foliage and the individual branches that become independent characters in their dynamism. It is precisely such a sheet, however, that shows Schwind's great talent for pointed depiction. The labouring devil, panting and sticking his tongue out at the viewer, is congenially contrasted with the saint, who is calmly holding the trowel at the ready and has almost become a building ornament himself. The same applies to Rübezahl, whose quirky wanderings reveal so much self-effacing carefreeness, which Schwind emphasises through small details such as the socks that have slipped down or the bones in his trouser pockets. Adolf Friedrich Graf von Schack acquired all three of Schwind's paintings, after which Wilhelm Hecht created the present prints, for his collection. Rübezahl and St Wolfgang were part of a group of 25 paintings that he was able to buy directly from the artist in 1869. Schwind called them travel paintings and created them without a commission for a private occasion. This may also explain the unconventional appearance of these pictures. Here he was able to indulge his passion for the fantastic and revel in whimsical forms and pictorial worlds. Keywords: 19th century, Romanticism, Mythology, Germany,

Weigmann, Klassiker der Kunst, S.73, Abb. rechts . - Verso in brauner Feder bezeichnet „Die Farbe von der Original Leinwand/ abgenommen und auf neue Leinwand/ übertragen, von J...Rauch.../aufziehen. Den 19ten 9bris 1835“. Auf dem Spannrahmen im blauem Farbstift nummeriert „No 22“. 40 x 32 cm. Rentoiliert. Mit kleinen Retuschen, feinen Krakelüren sowie mit leichten, schon in der Abbildung bei Weigmann sichtbaren Druckspuren. Schwind entstammte einer adeligen Wiener Familie und hatte zwei Brüder und drei Schwestern. Mehrfach schuf er neben Selbstbildnissen auch Portraits seiner Geschwister, so 1825 ein Brustbild seines Bruders Franz bei Zitherspiel und um 1828 den Bruder August en Face. Laut Weigmann soll es sich bei der Dargestellten vermutlich um Ernestine von Schwind (1796 - 1880) handeln, eine weitere Schwester des Künstlers und das Gemälde könnte 1834, während eines Aufenthaltes in Wien entstanden sein (a.o.O. S. 538; Anmerkung zu S. 73). Laut Auskunft der Vorbesitzer handelt es sich jedoch um Wilhelmine Josefa von Schwind (1798- 1835?), die mit dem in Wien ansässigen Arzt Johann Arzberger verheiratet war. Die geröteten Wangen, die fast allen Familienporträts eigen sind, gelten als Familienkennzeichen (Vgl. F. Haack, Künstler-Monographien, hrsg. von H. Knackfuß, 4. Aufl. 1913, S. 6; passim). Provenienz: Aus der Familie des Künstlers Moritz von Schwind. Gerahmt. [bg] Also have a look at lots 113, 144 und 150.

          Feder in Schwarz auf bräunlichem Velin. (1863). 29,1 x 22 cm. Verso mit weiteren szenenhaften Figurenskizzen. Im Herbst 1863 hatte Schwinds älteste Tochter Anna (1844-1891) den jungen Rechtsanwalt Dr. Johann Jacob Siebert aus Frankfurt geheiratet. Ihr Vater hatte als Hochzeitsgeschenk das sinnige Titelblatt für ein Haushaltungsbuch gestaltet, zu dem unsere schnell hingeworfenen Skizzen einen ersten Entwurf vorstellen. In der für Schwind charakteristischen Weise skizziert er mit wenigen flotten Strichen und großer Leichtigkeit auf der Vorderseite die Hauptszenerie, in der am Schreibtisch unter dem Dach die Hausfrau rechnet. Darunter zeigt Schwind den Blick in die Kellerräume des Hauses, während sich seitlich und oben Skizzen zu Nebenszenen befinden, die Schwind auf der Rückseite noch einmal aufgreift. Dort erscheinen die Lieferanten, die Waren bringen; unten links eine Mutter–Kind–Gruppe, die Schwind im ausgeführten Blatt vor dem Haus platziert hat, und in den Rundmedaillons rechts als Anspielung auf den christlichen Haushalt der tätige Joseph und darüber die Mutter Anna. Das "MIT GOTT" überschriebene, am 24. November 1863 begonnene Titelblatt, das Schwind seiner Tochter zum Geschenk machte, befand sich ehemals in der Sammlung des Frankfurter Arztes Dr. Theodor Demmer, eines Nachfahrens Dr. Sieberts. – Vereinzelt leichte Griffknicke, eine diagonal verlaufende Faltspur. Verso im Oberrand mit einem alten Montierungsstreifen, ansonsten in guter Erhaltung. Taxation: differenzbesteuert (VAT: Margin Scheme)

The explanatory text for this depiction in the album reads: "Let us tell you of children whom no mythologist knows, who, to settle disputes over names, are cheaply called faun-erotes. These suck, to nourish themselves, instead of Kypri's mother's breast, on swollen grape berries, gods' strength and gods' lust."
