About

A graphic late 20th century landscape depicting the ruins of the ancient city of Lato in Crete, Greece. The artist Heidy Stangenberg-Merck, has used a variety of expressive brushstrokes that create a depth and originality to the composition. The artist's life long love for the Mediterranean and coastal landscape painting have been wonderfully captured here. She regularly travelled to Greece and countries situated close to the Adriatic sea, organising her first trip in 1956 and continuing until her death. This painting was possibly completed during one of these research trips to Greece. Inscribed on the reverse with the location. Also with a label for the 'Ing Baring's Collection', reference 'PT199'. Signed. On canvas on stretchers. Image Size:84 x 90.5cm (33.1" x 35.6") Artist's Biography: Heidy Stangenberg-Merck spent her childhood and school days in Jugenheim an der Bergstrasse. She received artistic inspiration and support from her mother Marietta Merck. In 1943 Heidy Stangenberg-Merck was accepted at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich , where she studied until 1950. During her studies in academics, her teacher was Professor of Drawing, Professor Adolf Schinnerer (1876-1949) and her painting teacher Hans Gött (1883-1974), with whom she had a lifelong, inspiring relationship. From 1949 she participated regularly in exhibitions and solo exhibitions. In 1950 she set up a painting and drawing studio in Munich, which existed until 1970. In 1954 she took part in the Summer Course of the painter Oskar Kokoschka in Salzburg at the International Summer Academy for Fine Arts , which he founded in 1953.
