I'm offering an original portrait by Otto Fisher-Lamberg, the famed German artist. Framed and under glass. This is a striking pencil portrait of his daughter, from approximately 1940.
For further provenance contact me through eCrater (serious inquiries only, please).
Otto Fischer-Lamberg was born into a Baltic German family in 1886, and grew up in Berlin. His artistic career began at the Academy of Fine Arts and at the Royal Art School in Berlin. He continued his studies at the Art Academy in Weimar. He studied under both Hans Olde and Fritz Mackensen. From 1912 to 1946 he worked as a teacher at Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg. His intellectual art was opposed to the cultural dictates of the Nazis. He died in 1963 in Halle.
His works in public and private collections include the Stiftung Moritzburg Halle, Art Museum of Saxony-Anhalt, MoMA, Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg, Deutsches Museum Munich, German Literature Archive Marbach, Kleist Museum, Frankfurt and the collection of Gerd Gruber, Wittenberg.
The artist has been the subject of a 1996 biographical monograph (written in German, coauthored by the same daughter illustrated in the drawing). He has had many posthumous art exhibitions. A little Google search reveals several of his works have sold at auction. Prices seem to be increasing. Most notably, the painting Leere Strasse ("empty street") went for more than 4000$ in 2014. Otto Fischer-Lamberg is represented by the Gallery Oltmanns in Germany.
The wooden frame is about 16" by 19", the matting opening is about 7" by 9". There is a crack in the wooden frame.
