Louis Henry Charles Moeller Oil Painting Anchient Coin

Lot 91044 Details

Description
Louis Henry Charles Moeller N.A. (1855 - 1930), title: "The Connoisseurs", signed Louis Moeller N.A., dated 1903, a vibrant depiction of two stately gentleman in the midst of negotiations, one gentleman handling coins and currency, while the other looks on intently document in hand, reference papers and book hanging off the table, the background boasts an eclectic collection of fine porcelains perhaps in a gallery or shop of the era. The work certainly has many interesting things going on, the artist well listed National Academy acclaimed, the stretcher and frame period. This work would make an impressive addition to any fine household or collection.
DETAILS:
- SIZE: 8" x 10" (artwork) / 12" x 13 3/4" (frame).
- CONDITION REPORT: There is minor in-painting in the upper right quadrant. The percentage of the original surface area is 95% original with 5% in-painting. The signature properly and correctly fades under blacklight. Overall the painting is in very good to excellent condition.
Background: Louis Henry Charles Moeller (1855 - 1930)
A native of New York, he became one of America's foremost anecdotal genre painters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A favorite subject was distinguished elderly men going about everyday activities in gentile interior settings that reflected Victorian tastes.
He was the son of a decorative painter and was initially taught by his father and then attended classes at the National Academy of Design. For six years, he studied in Munich with Frank Duveneck, Ludwig Lofftz, and Feodor Dietz and during this period was part of a group of American artists emulating 17th century Dutch masters.
Returning to New York, he opened a studio and did decorative painting while developing the genre style for which he is known. He earned the National Academy's Hallgarten Prize for a small painting entitled "Puzzled" and was made an Associate Member.
"The genre paintings for which Moeller became known are small in format. Small animated figures vie for the viewer's attention with objects treated almost as independent still-life elements. The objects are often "objects de vertu- collectors' prizes." (Baigell)
