Fisherman [Heinrich Rüter]
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.
