Dammeier, Rudolf (1851-1936)

German artist Rudolf Dammeier is predominantly known for genre scenes, interiors and portraits. Born in Berlin, he received a formal education via the Berliner Bauakademie, Prussian Academy of Arts, and the Karlsruhe Art School.

Given his formal education, Dammeier’s works are underpinned with an appreciation of old master grandiosity yet they’re delivered in looser brushwork. There’s a sense of controlled expression whereby the details of a subject are represented faithfully yet delivered with a layer of restrained flourishes.
