Otto Straßmann, Portrait Of A Sailor

Otto Straßmann, Portrait Of A Sailor

A characterful early 20th-century portrait of a sailor by German painter, Otto Straßmann (1891-1956). This is one of Straßmann’s finest works and it’s full of expression.

Note the moisture in the deep-set eyes, the ruddy cheeks and the worn skin - aged by years of sea air. Imagine the stories he could tell… if only we knew.

The painting is signed in the lower right.
