About

This extraordinary vintage American Modernist oil on canvas painting titled "The Guitarist, 1949" , was executed by a noteworthy historic Chicago artist named Otto Rainer Niebuhr (20th C. American) in 1949. A rare and grand sized work depicting a guitarist entranced in the splendor of his music; so exemplifying the Expressionist style of the period. His serene expression and languid posture allow the viewer to be swept away with the subject in this blissful state. The guitarist's curvilinear form harkens to the figures painted by the fine American Regionalist artist, Thomas Hart Benton. This rather grand scale painting measures 41" High x 32" Wide (Framed). *This rare and fine example of Expressionist painting is a collection centerpiece in both quality and size. It is housed in a fine period frame, highly complimentary to the work. 41" High x 32" Wide (Framed). The painting hung for many years in Chicago's historic "Old Heidelberg" restaurant, now a landmark which boasted a collection of many fine paintings during its heyday in old Chicago. Otto Rainer Niebuhr was a gifted artist painting in the Expressionist style of the 1930s and 1940s in Chicago, * An excellent painting is always a good investment.
