Werner Reuter, Farmhouse Interior With Painted Trunk & Chair

Werner Reuter, Farmhouse Interior With Painted Trunk & Chair

A detailed interior scene with a hand-painted trunk, chair, textiles, and clock, by German artist, Werner Reuter (1902-1962). You can almost hear the clock gently ticking as you while away the hours in this beautiful farmhouse.

Reuter had a workshop in Lübeck, North Germany, and he enjoyed painting interior scenes. Another of his works depicts him in his studio surrounded by canvases, frames and supplies. Two large windows provide an abundance of light.

The painting is signed in the lower right and housed in a frame that’s probably the original.

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.
