Antique Late 19 th Century Gerhard HEILMANN Lake View Farm with Figure Landscape Painting Oil 1 of 46 European Artworks Chicago NY Designer Estate

This is one of forty six original period European oil paintings by well listed artists that we are in the process of offering on our seller's site. Please see our other listings.
Provenance: The collection comes from a retired American designer with family ties to New York, Chicago Illinois and Los Angeles, California. We personally removed all 46 paintings from the families Florida Gulf Coast estate. This collection was curated by a Scandinavian art historian living in Denmark, and all paintings were individually sourced as a component part of a focused composite collection emphasizing plein air, lyrically impastoed impressionism and post impressionism with atmospheric elements and seasonal nuances. All but 2 of the paintings were displayed framed and most frames were commissioned new from one of several American framing galleries in Florida although several of the works retain European moldings. Virtually everything in the collection is ready to hang.

Hess Fine Auctions is pleased to offer this gorgeous scenic lake view farm landscape with a figure on a gated winding path by listed artist Gerhard Heilman.
Heilmann, Gerhard, 1859–1946 (In 1942 he changed the spelling of his name to "Heilman", however the older spelling predominates): Danish artist and paleontologist who created artistic depictions of Archeopteryx, Proavis and other early bird relatives apart from writing The Origin of Birds, a pioneering and influential account of bird evolution. Heilmann lacked a formal training in science although he studied medicine briefly before shifting to art. His ideas on bird evolution were first written in Danish in the Dansk Ornitologisk Tidsskrift.
In 1883 Heilmann quit his medicine studies and became an apprentice painter of Franz Schwartz and later P S Krøyer. He joined Royal Copenhagen porcelain works in 1890 and worked there until 1902. He then worked as a free-lance artist, illustrating books. Some of his key works included illustrations in Schiøler's Danmarks Fugle (birds of Denmark), Jægeren in Naturen (1925) (Hunter in Nature), Danmarks Sangfugle 1926 (Denmark's songbirds), and a three-volume Danmarks Fugleliv (1926–1930). An ardent birdwatcher himself, he was one of the first members of the Danish Ornithological Society started in 1906. He designed the front cover of the society's journal. Some Danish banknotes were designed by him.
