Bildnis Frau Sophie Isakowitz, 1932
Don't you love when you stumble upon something when you are looking for something else entirely! Look at these gems, by German Expressionist and mentor of Otto Dix, Conrad Felixmüller, I just found! One could work as a Persephone cover.
Self-portrait (with his wife), 1930
Zeitungsjunge (Newspaper Boy), 1928
There's a pattern in my preference in art. Someday, in my dream world, these will be a few of what has become a massive collection. Now let us head to the third floor gallery, shall we?
Lorna von dem Spiegel, 1933
Dear Daniel, I wasn't familiar with his work but I love it! xx
No Conrad, but some Otto it seems. Till January 6 at the Guggenheim.
i love the self-portrait with his wife.
Christina, I knew you would! Especially with your love of Tamara de Lempicka and all!
Carrick, this exhibit looks amazing...right up my interwar alley, let's go!
Sarah, I love it too- my second favorite, after Frau Sofie.
"Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön," as they say at this time of year. Leaden-headed moi, I keep seeing in the date of the final portrait the arrival of the new Chancellor, to open his 12-year stint in that position, not all of them consonant with the lady's expectations. An outstanding posting.
Thanks Laurent. I didn't even think of Hitler when posting these painting...such a horrific time.
These are stunning! Is there anything the 1930s wasn't best at?
Seriously! Simon, I wish I were born in 1904...
Felixmüller and his wife were with the von Lamatsch family in Dresden two hours before the city was levelled. I knew Frau v. Lamatsch and her daughter Mausi. In 1965 Mausi went from her home in Munich to visit Felixmüller in east Berlin. He gave her one of his paintings. I never saw it. I don't know who has it now. Felixmüller also painted her grand- father Clemens Braun.
