$125,000

About

Hans Zatzka (Austrian, 1859-1945) a superb quality oil on board titled "Springtime" depicting two young maidens in the forest collecting flowers by a river bank, one standing with flowers pilled-up on her dress while the other rests on a tree-trunk, in the background, Zatzka's own trade mark depiction of two kissing doves. The quality and detail of this painting reflects Hans Zatzka's prime period of Fine quality and detailed artworks. Within an ornate finely carved a gilded frame. Signed H. Zatzka (lower right), circa 1885. Measures: Board height 27 inches (68.6 cm). Board width 18 1/4 inches (46.4 cm). Frame height 42 1/2 (108 cm). Frame width 36 5/8 inches (93 cm). Frame depth 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm). Hans Zatzka (Austrian 1859-1945) was a well-known and regarded Austrian fantasy artist whose most popular and valuable works depicted figures of young maidens with angels, floral and other cheerful and warm scenes, including Orientalist themes. In the past thirty years alone, the high quality and detail of his beautiful paintings has caught the attention of International collectors and art dealers alike, creating a highly sought after market and demand for his instantly recognizable body of work. In the late 19th and early 20th century, many of Zazka's charming works were photographed for commercial and collectible postcards. Though no information about his works being exhibited in museums is currently available, most of Zatzka's paintings are in private collections and, in the past century, very few of them have become available on the open market. At the young age of eighteen Zatzka joined Austria's Academy of Fine Arts under the leadership of Professor Blaas. For his Fine early works, in 1880 he received The Golden Fugermedal award. Zatzka, like many other artists of the era, traveled around Europe working and selling his art and, in one of his many trips to Italy, he developed a special interest in religious themes, decorating churches with fresco's as well as painting several religious scenes of Madonna's and child, saints, angels and others. In 1885, Zatzka was commissioned to paint "The Naiad of Baden" a ceiling fresco at Kurhaus Baden. Most of Zatzka's income came from his work in religious art and special church commissions. Numerous leading art dealers from around the world that specialize in late 19th and early 20th century European genre paintings have come to the conclusion that the painter signing his works Bernard Zatzka, Joseph Bernard or J. Bernard is almost certainly the artist Hans Zatzka. The consensus seems quite plausible when comparing works known to have been executed by Hans Zatzka together with similar works displaying the signature; Joseph Bernard, J. Bernard or Bernard Zatzka.
