Richard Von Hagn, Portrait Of A Young Lady In An Orange Necktie

An early 20th-century portrait of a young lady in a silk blouse and orange necktie by German painter, Richard Von Hagn (1850-1933).

There’s a gentle delicacy to this portrait and a sense of shyness in the sitter. Her demure expression and subtle smile are offset by a deep red background.

Richard Von Hagn was well-respected in his day and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden. He spent many years of his adult life in Venice, which became a second home for him, but returned to Dresden later in life. His contemporaries considered him to be a little introverted and he opted to dedicate his life to his art rather than settle down with a family.

The painting is housed within a stylish Art Deco frame and signed in the lower right.

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.
