Henry Thomas Schäfer, a Pair of Oil on Canvas Architectural Paintings circa 1880

About

Signed: ‘H. Schafer’, lower left. Media: Oil painting on canvas. Dimensions (unframed): 7-7/8 X 6-1/6 inches; Dimensions (framed): 13-1/2 X 11-1/2 inches. Condition: Fine, natural aging of canvas, stretcher and frame. This pair of antique, ‘cabinet-size’ rectangular oil on canvas paintings depict classic European street scenes from the 19th century. Set in elegant modern gilt wood frames, the paintings feature a market day in Antwerp, Belgium; and the other artwork depicts a market day in Hildesheim, Germany. The paintings show the artist's strong mastery of perspective and architectural renderings. The colors are rich, realistic, and have a beautiful golden glow. Both artworks signed on the lower left, H. Schafer. Henry Thomas Schäfer (British, 1854-1915) was an important Victorian-era genre painter and sculptor, elected in 1889 to the Royal Society of British Artists. Henry Schäfer was very active from 1873-1915, and exhibited extensively in Great Britain - at the Royal Society, the Royal Academy, the Royal Scottish Academy, Suffolk Street; and again at the Royal Scottish Academy, in 1911. This artist is listed in the Benezit catalogue.
