Hemich Vitz, Five Cow Studies

Hemich Vitz, Five Cow Studies

An interesting study of five cows by German artist, Hemich Vitz (1915-1986). With a limited amount of brushwork and some clever impasto, Vitz illustrates the form of each cow. We love the way the ground is left to appear in several areas.

The study is housed in a simple wooden frame and bears an estate stamp on the reverse.

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.
