Hugo Ziegler, Study Of An Angel

Hugo Ziegler, Study Of An Angel

An early 20th-century portrait study of an angel by German painter, Hugo Ziegler (1864-1934). There’s an ethereal quality to this beautiful piece, which is enhanced by its loose brushwork.

Perhaps it’s a study from an old master painting that Zielger observed during his travels. Or potentially an oil sketch to inform a later work.

The portrait is housed within a contemporary ornate handmade frame.

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.
