Adolf Reich, In Thought

A skilfully rendered portrait of an older gentleman by Austrian artist, Adolf Reich (1887-1963). While resting his bearded chin on his right hand, the subject looks ponderously across the rims of his rickety old spectacles.

Reich possessed an extraordinary ability to capture the smallest of details with the utmost of care and his style was entirely traditional.

In 1916, he attended the Academy of Arts in Vienna and elected to paint in a classical style despite many of his contemporaries opting for the avant-garde.

The painting is housed within a gilded frame with coved sides and swept corners.

Medium: Oil on wood
Provenance: Germany
Condition: Artwork in good condition with a light accumulation of dirt and frame with age-related wear.
Artist's Auction Highlight: £33,753 achieved at Sotheby’s, USA, in 2015 for ‘Im Künstleratelier’ (50cm x 39.5cm).
