Hans Tschelan, Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Pipe

Hans Tschelan, Portrait Of A Gentleman With A Pipe

A characterful portrait of a man with a pipe by Austrian artist, Hans Tschelan (1873-1964).

Tschelan trained at the Weimar Academy and later studied in Paris and Florence. In around 1905, he settled in the Batschka region (Serbia/Hungary) where he enjoyed painting everyday scenes featuring local people.

It’s possible that this gentleman is from that region and perhaps this was a study to prepare for a group scene.

The portrait is housed within a decorative gilded frame and signed/dated in the lower right.
