$45,000

About

A Beautiful orientalist painting depicting a beautiful young woman with a spool spinner. Rudolf Ernst travelled to Spain, North Africa, Turkey and Egypt in the late nineteenth century and he became fascinated with Islamic culture and his paintings reflected his inspiration. Title: La Fileuse Artist: Rudolf Ernst (Austrian, 1854-1932) Signature: signed R. Ernst (lower right) Medium: oil on panel Dimension: 13 x 9 1/2 in.; (framed) 20.25 in. x 16.50 in Notes: Rudolf Ernst was born in Vienna in 1854 and joined the Academy of Fine Arts at the age of 15. Ernst also studied in the studios of Eisenmenger and Feuerbach at the Viennese Academy. After a sojourn to Rome in 1874, he settled in Paris in 1876 where he would exhibit at the Salon des Artistes Francais for the following six decades, befriending Ludwig Deutsch. Ernst is best known for his Orientalist pictures which portray merchants, guards and pashas of the Ottoman Empire. Abroad, Ernst fell under the spell of the religious aspects of Islam and the Koran. He received the bronze medal at the Universal Exhibition in 1889 and at the Autumn Salon of 1900. Ernst left Paris in the 1900 to live in Fontenay-aux-Roses, where he lived a quiet and somewhat reclusive life.
