About

Oil painting on canvas, depicting Italian Market Scene, Max Friedrich Rabes (German, 1868-1944). Rabes’s pictorial style had two phases, a first impressionist and the second orientalist, although he always rejected that label. Born in Germany, Max Friedrich Rabes spent very little time in his native country and instead spent his career scouring the globe, exploring Africa, Asia, and Europe. Studying under the tutelage of Paul Graeb, son of the celebrated architectural and decorative painter Karl Graeb, Rabes quickly formed a solid foundation of skills and techniques. In order to fund his love of travel, he painted stage sets for theaters, created murals and decorated dining rooms for the Italian bourgeoisie. Rabes tended to portray figures, environments, scenes of life always full of charm and exotic mystery and frequently also of a certain sensuality, he saw in the exotic world an environment free from bourgeois conventions. In this painting you can see a balance of his main pictorial styles, in fact the technique seems to take up the impressionist; the “en plein air” mode, the brushstrokes fast and full of color, aimed at representing a market scene, typical of Orientalism. Here, however, we are not in the Middle-East, but in Italy, which also became one of the main destinations towards the end of the 19th century for young artists in search of new inspirations and new suggestions to impress in their works. Signed on the bottom right. In very good condition. Gilded wood frame in mecca from the 20th century. Dimensions: Without Frame Cm 121 x 161 With Frame Cm 141 x 182
