Franz Burger, Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Green Tie

Regular price £149.00

DESCRIPTION

A small characterful portrait of a cheerful gentleman in a green tie, suit and floppy brown hat.

Franz Burger (1857-1940) was a painter, illustrator and poster designer, who was born in the Austrian City of Innsbruck. He studied under Lindenschmidt, Karl Raupp and Franz von Defregger, and later became a professor at the Staatsgewerbeschule in his home town.

His works include portraits, genre scenes and picturesque alpine views, which is no surprise given that he lived deep within the beautiful Austrian Alps.

In 1896, he collaborated with three other artists to produce a giant round painting depicting a panoramic view of the Battle of the Bergisel (1809). The ‘Innsbruck Riesenrundgemälde’ is over 1000 square metres in size and currently on display at The Tirol Panorama Museum in Innsbruck.

The portrait is signed/dated in the top left and housed within a vintage wooden frame.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
