Fisherman [Heinrich Rüter]

Regular price £295.00

A portrait of a bearded fisherman who has the time-worn look of a man with plenty of stories. He seems contemplative, as his heavy deep set eyes stare long into the distance. His white shirt is buttoned to the top and he holds a wooden pipe in his left hand.

The artist, Heinrich Rüter (1877-1955), was born in Hilden, Germany, and studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. He’s primarily known for his murals, frescoes and mosaics that adorn many of the churches in Rhineland and Westphalia.

His oil paintings occasionally appear at auction and a work entitled ‘Loading the camel train’ sold at Christie’s in 2011 for £2,125.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price unless otherwise stated. And for those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish.

Lost Items

All items are insured against loss during transit. If your parcel goes missing, let us know and we'll make an enquiry with the courier on your behalf. If the item can't be located, we will, of course, send you a full refund.

Damaged Items

Standard courier insurance policies generally don't provide cover for damage to framed artwork, canvases, antiques or glass, so any refunds regarding damaged works are discretionary. If you would like to insure your item fully, we're happy to get some specialist quotes for you.
