About

An original signed oil painting on canvas by German artist Adolf Lins (1856-1927) titled "Cottage Landscape with Geese at Twilight", c. 1890. Hand signed by Lins lower left. Framed within its original period gold-leaf gesso frame. Framed size: 32" x 44.25". Canvas size: 18" x 30". Relined. Some damage to frame associated with age, has been re-guilded. In otherwise generally good condition. Adolf Lins, called the Gänselins (born October 21, 1856 in Kassel - March 26, 1927 in Düsseldorf), was a German painter. He is assigned to the Düsseldorf painting school and belonged to the Willingshausen painter colony. Adolf Lins was born on October 21, 1856, the third of four children of the married couple Rudolph Lins (1822-1870), postal clerk, and Bertha, née Kürschner (1823-1890), in Kassel. When the father climbs from the post assistant to the post secretary general, the family moves the apartment to the outskirts of the city because of the improved financial situation. However, with the death of his father, Adolf is thirteen, the family experienced a social decline, which is documented by the renewed change of apartment, now in the Castenalsgasse in Kassel's old town. The mother is committed to good education for all children. The son Adolf attended the humanistically oriented Friedrichs-Gymnasium from 1866 and left in 1872 with the upper secondary school leaving certificate. His siblings also embarked on an upmarket career path, the older brother Carl worked as an architect and drawing teacher, the younger brother Theophil rose to become the factory director, and Adolfs' sister, Auguste Lins, four years older, headed the technical school of the Municipal Household and Commercial Association. She remains unmarried. Adolf Lins studied from 1872 to 1875 at the art school in his hometown Kassel with Friedrich Müller (1801–1889), the history painter Eduard Ihlée and the landscape painters August Bromeis and Eduard Stiegel (1818–1879).
