Wilhelm Velten 'Russian/German, 1847-1929' Antique Oil Painting “The Horse Fair"
Typical of work by Velten, this small oil panel is tightly and precisely painted with such an exquisite level of detailing; it is a highly complex scene with nearly a dozen figures and nearly as many horses in the fore and mid-grounds. His paintings were almost exclusively very small and this example is quite large for him, most of his scenes being even smaller. The degree of effort and skill he showcases in these small spaces is noteworthy and a contributing factor to his high collectability. Born in St. Petersburg, Russia in 1847, Wilhelm Velten moved as a young man to Germany where he worked from until his death in Munich in 1929. The majority of his work focuses around military scenes, vivid landscapes with horses and figures, hunting scenes and snowy landscapes. His works are held in museum collections in Munich, Prague and Buffalo. Measurements: 17 3/8” W x 1 3/8” D x 14 3/8” H [frame], 14 1/8” W x 10 3/4” H [panel].
