Portrait Of Anton Müller-Wischin

This characterful portrait of the artist, Anton Müller-Wischin (1865-1949), captures him in a steely mood.

With a carved relief on his right, he looks ahead with a knowing expression. He rests his right hand on a stick.

The painting is signed illegibly but clearly by a skilled hand. Müller-Wischin worked within a progressive circle of artists.

The portrait was originally held at the artist’s estate in Marquartstein, Germany.

Conservation & History

We care profoundly about our role as custodians and every piece in the collection has been assessed by our conservator. When required, we undertake professional restoration carefully using reversible techniques and adopt a light touch to retain the aged charm of each work. We also restore frames rather than replace them as many are original and selected by the artists themselves.
