Zimmermann, Reinhard Sebastian
1815 Hagnau - 1893 Munich.
«Aus dem Schwarzwalde (from the Black Forest)». Rest at the wayside shrine.
Oil on canvas. Signed lower left, dated 1850 and inscribed «München (Munich)».
H 63,5, W 81 cm (support). Gilt frame.
Zimmermann made his beginnings in portrait painting. After training at the Müncher Akademie and years of artistic wandering, he developed into a genre painter who dealt with the life of farmers and the lower middle class in his Southern German homeland. Appointed court painter to Baden, Zimmermann is known for his warm colouring and finely narrated character scenes.
In 1850, he apparently painted this motif twice: as a large format in the present painting and as a smaller variant in oil on paper, which he dedicated and presented as a gift in honour of King Ludwig I on the occasion of the unveiling of the Bavaria in 1850 together with works by numerous artists of distinction. The paper variant is in the so-called König Ludwig Album in the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München with the inventory number KLA 69.
We would like to thank Dr. Andreas Strobl, Staatliche Graphische Sammlung München, for the kind remarks via e-mail, based on photos, 25.05.2023.
Provenance: Sotheby's, London, auction 21.06.1989, lot 270; private collection Markgräflerland.
