About

Frederick Bauer "Chinese Children" Original Oil Painting c.1890s Charming painting of Chinese children eating their meal. Painted by California / German artist Frederick Bauer (b.1857) on canvas applied to board. The painting is signed in the lower right corner. Very good condition. The canvas is separating from the board at the upper top margin. The frame appears to be original to the painting. Dimensions 15" x 12". The frame measures 20 1/2" x 17 1/2". A wonderful antique painting! Frederick Bauer was born in Germany in 1857. Bauer appears to have been well trained in his native land. By the 1880s he had immigrated to California and in 1886 became a U.S. citizen in Visalia. Upon moving north he lived in San Francisco and Fresno until about 1928. His trail is then lost. Bauer painted in the realistic style of the Düsseldorf School. His California subjects include the Trinity Alps, coastal scenes, Chinatown and Indian genre. Exh: Fresno Co. Fair, 1891 (1st prize); Calif. State Fair, 1891; Presbyterian Fair (Fresno), 1896.
