Josef Wagner-Höhenberg
Paying his dues



Josef Wagner-Höhenberg German, (1870-1939) Paying his dues Oil on canvas, signed Image size: 25 inches x 35 inches Size including frame: 32½ inches x 42½ inches Josef Wagner-Höhenberg was a genre, portrait and historical painter who was born in Höhenberg, Germany in 1870. He was the father of the genre painter Fritz Wagner (1896-1967). He studied at the Florence Academy of Art as well as in Munich and later became a member of the Munich school of painting. Wagner-Höhenberg specialised in painting finely detailed interior scenes featuring the German working class. Due to his ability to capture emotion and give portrait-like features to his subjects he is considered one of the most gifted 19th-century German artists of his era. Examples of his work can be found in many private and public art collections including the Witt Library. The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.
