Wilhelm Nerenz
Neapolitan musician. German academic Romanticism genre painting



Oil on canvas, SIGNED with monogram lower middle and dated 1854 Painting SIZE 7.68 x 10.24 in., 19.5 x 26 cm Frame size 11.81 x 14.57 in., 30 x 37 cm Wilhelm Nerenz (1804-Berlin-1871) followed his teacher Wilhelm Schadow from Berlin to Dusseldorf, but then returned back to his hometown, where he was hailed as a genre painter. Painting technique and compositionally at the same high level that characterizes almost all the early Schadow students, Nerenz work fell by special attention to detail, combined with exceptional control of matter on. Many of his works were reproduced as engravings and lithographs. This painting was still under the impression of the trip to Italy of the artist. Nerenz held from 1843-46 and again from 1847 probably in Rome. Accordingly, one finds 1843-54 Italian subject in the dictionary of Friedrich von Boetticher from those years. ARTIST DICTIONARIES: Thieme-Becker; Bötticher; Schweers: Paintings in German museums.
