1945

$4,750

About

Signed lower left "Carl Fischer" (Danish, 1887-1952) and painted circa 1945. A psychologically penetrating oil study of the artist's wife, shown reclining on a chaise-lounge, supported by pillows, resting her head on her hand and gazing directly towards the viewer. In this atmospheric work, Fischer has accomplished an intimate portrait of his wife that serves both as an elegant tonalist composition and as a tour-de-force character study. Carl Fischer first studied under Viggo Johansen (1907-12) and, subsequently, in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. He was the recipient of several scholarships, including the Akademie Scholarship (1917) which allowed him to continue his studies uninterrupted for two full years abroad. Fischer exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous prizes, medals and juried awards. Beginning in 1918, he was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Danish Academy of Art's fall Salon at the Charlottenborg Gallery.
