About

Signed lower left, 'Friedrich Fehr' (German, 1862-1927), inscribed 'Karlsruhe' and dated '1918'. Friedrich Fehr first attended the Munich Academy of Fine Arts (1878-84) where he studied under Alexander Strahuber and Ludwig Von Lofftz. In 1885, he was awarded the Martin von Wagner Foundation scholarship which enabled him to live and study for five years in Italy. During this period, Fehr made an intensive study of anatomy and the techniques of the early Renaissance masters. In 1890, Fehr returned to Germany, settling in Munich where he co-founded a private painting school. Graduates of this school included numerous well-known artists including Emil Nolde, Clara Rilke-Westhoff and Hans Meyer-Kassel. Fehr became an increasingly influential and successful teacher including, from 1897, at the Karlsruhe Academy. As a result of his grounding in anatomy, he also taught the live drawing class of the Munich Artists' Association and, in the same year, was appointed to a professorship at the Karlsruhe Academy, where he continued to lead the painting department until its dissolution in 1923. Over the course of a distinguished career, Fehr exhibited widely and with success and his works may be found in the permanent collections of national museums including the Nationalgalerie in Munich and the Karlsruhe Museum. He is also listed in all relevant art reference works. After Friedrich Fehr's death, a bronze statue was cast in tribute to the artist and still stands above the Stephanplatz fountain in his hometown of Karlsruhe. Reference: E.
