Heinrich Kley Interior of a Steel Mill WC Painting
Item Details
Description
GERMANY, 1863-1945
A watercolor and tempera industrial painting by Heinrich Kley. Titled "Interior of a Steel Mill", the work is one of the finest examples of Kley's Industrial Art. The painting exhibits early influences of mythological creatures as seen in his later pen and ink drawings. Satyrs are seen patrolling a canal as two male figures smelt metal in the middle ground. Smoke fills the air as bats swarm from the background. Kley effectively illuminates the scene with flames from smelting metal enhancing a sense of despair. The painting is signed in the lower left corner.
