Constant David Ludovic Artz (Netherlands, 1870-1951) oil on board landscape painting depicting a family of ducks resting in a sheltered meadow. Signed Constant Artz, lower left. Housed under glass in an ornate antique giltwood carved frame with floral and acanthus leaf decoration. Sight - 6" H x 8 1/8" W. Framed - 15" H x 17" W. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Constant Artz was born in Paris, the son of David Adolph Constant Artz (1837-1890). Constant Artz lived and worked in Holland. He was a student of The Hague Academy and in 1899, became a pupil of T. Offermans. His father studied primarily with the Dutch painter Jozef Israels and became intimate friends with artists Jacob and Matthijs Maris. Their brother, Willem Maris, was a great influence on Constant Artz, and along with fellow artists Neuhuys and B.J. Blommers, Constant's father played a great role in nineteenth century genre painting. Like his father, Constant Artz followed his love of nature and painted open-air cameos in a realistic style; he was particularly drawn to depicting ducks.
