1945

About

Signed lower left "Carl Fischer" (Danish, 1887-19520) and painted circa 1945. A psychologically penetrating oil study of the artist's wife, shown reclining on a chaise-lounge against pillows, supporting her head on her hand and gazing directly towards the viewer. The artist has accomplished both a tour-de-force character study and and and elegant tonalist composition. 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 further his studies for two years abroad. Fischer exhibited widely and with success and was the recipient of numerous prizes, medals and juried awards. Throughout his lifetime, he was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Danish Academy of Art's fall invitational exhibition at the Charlottenborg Gallery.
