1900 Georg Roessler Listed Artist Tyrol Peasant GEORG ROESSLER (1861-1925) - PORTRAIT OF TYROLEAN PEASANT WITH PIPE - This original oil painting by Goerg Roessler is in very good condition, with its original frame intact. The actual painting measures 9" x 7", the overall size is 17" x 19.5". There is one tiny chip on the front of the frame, apart from that it is perfect.
Georg Roessler is a well listed and highly collected artist whose pictures have sold at auction in the 1990's from $1,800 - $4,000 . This painting is well priced and it seems to be the same painting sold by Dr. Fritz Nagel's auction house in Germany in 1993, for US$4,000, though as we have no picture from catalogues we cannot guarantee this.
Roessler specialized in scenes and portraits from the Austrian, Italian and German Alps. The detail in his paintings is very impressive as is his use of a limited and sumptuous palette.
All in all, a lovely painting well worth the asking price. ore pictures 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 Price $1,150.00
