Carl Schweninger the Younger
Oil painting of young lovers by Schweninger the Younger

Late 19th Century

About

This charming painting of two young lovers was created by Karl Schweninger the Younger (1854-1903), an accomplished Austrian artist. Schweninger the Younger was taught by his father, the landscape painter, Karl Schweninger the Elder, and he later went on to train at the academies in Vienna and Munich. His paintings are often Rococo in their style and depict beautiful female nudes, courting couples, and light-hearted genre scenes. This piece is signed ‘C. Schweninger’ in the lower left corner. The image depicts a beautiful young woman standing in a garden before a stone wall, wearing a sheer loose white dress, which flirtatiously reveals her nude body underneath. She adopts a classical contrapposto pose, resting her weight on one leg and bending the other at the knee, causing her hips and shoulders to tilt and torso to twist slightly in a relaxed and elegant way. The woman rests her head in the crook of her right arm, and her left is held by a man, who stands behind her on the other side of the wall. The man leans his face in close to hers, in an attempt to kiss her. The wall is possibly a symbol of something that prevents the couple from being together, perhaps family disapproval, as it is in the classical story of Pyramus and Thisbe. It may also be a tool to ensure that the scene remains decorous, allowing the artist to represent love in its purest form, or it may be there to focus all of our attention on the woman’s beautiful nude body, rather than on the man who accompanies her. The painting is displayed within a giltwood frame, which is finely carved with classical ovolo motifs and scrolling acanthus leaves. On the reverse side of the stretcher, a label reads ‘Karl Schweninger/ Wien 1854-1903/ Junger Liebes/ kuss’. Frame- Height 135cm, width 80cm, depth 9cm Canvas- Height 100cm, width 45.5cm
