Oskar Hagemann, Portrait Of A Girl

Oskar Hagemann, Portrait Of A Girl

A fine mid-20th-century half-length portrait of a girl by German artist Oskar Hagemann (1888-1985).

This very presentable portrait was almost certainly painted for a family that commissioned it. You can imagine that it once hung proudly in the home - perhaps alongside other portraits of siblings.

Hagemann had a gift for portraiture and a knack for capturing a sitter’s character with soft impressionistic marks. He studied at Karlsruhe Art Academy and he’s represented in several museums.

The painting is housed within an appropriate later frame and signed/dated in the upper left.
