    Cyclamen



    ***
    Painter Arthur Meltzer had early training in his hometown at the Minneapolis School of Fine Arts and as an apprentice in a stained glass studio. After serving in World War I, he studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, one of his teachers being Daniel Garber. In 1921 he won the Cresson Traveling Scholarship, which enabled him to study in Europe. Meltzer is considered a member of the Pennsylvania School of impressionists. Moods of the seasons and different times of day interested him in his choice of subject. In 1925, Meltzer joined the faculty of the Moore Institute (now the Moore College of Art and Design) and in 1926 he became Head of the Fine Arts Department, teaching painting, drawing, and anatomy. Here he met Paulette Van Roekens, also a Moore College teacher and painter. Their professional friendship grew into love and in 1927 they were married. Meltzer taught at the Moore Institute until 1949. His work hangs in many important collections throughout the country, among them the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Columbus Gallery of Fine Arts, Ohio, and the Woodmere Art Museum in Philadelphia.

    "...In 1751 he worked in Vienna, before moving to Dresden and then in 1756, at the official invitation of the tsarina Elisaveta Petrovna, he went to St Petersburg where he died in mysterious circumstances in 1762. In Vienna he saw the pastels of Liotard, who had worked there during the period 1743-1745. In a sense, he is his heir and successor at the court as a fashionable painter. He may already have seen some of Liotard’s work in Venice where the Genevan artist had spent a few months in 1745, but there is no evidence to confirm this hypothesis.
    Evidently Liotard was his model even though the two employ quite distinct techniques: Liotard is a sublime master of pastels while Rotari uses oils, a far denser medium.
    At the beginning in Italy, Rotari restricted himself to using details of the female heads from his religious works (though it is no clear how much later this happened) such as the Head of a girl in the Museum of Castelvecchio in Verona (no.3650) from the Nativity of Mary done for the church of S. Giovanni di Verdara in Padua in 1741. Even in his youthful works the Apostolates, however, he seems to be studying the temperaments and varieties of expression on male heads, with subtle distinctions in the way they are depicted.
    However, it is also possible that Rotari “invented” his genre outside Italy for enlightenment and freethinking patrons who did not have primarily religious or Catholic interests. In St Petersburg, in particular, he taught in the academy that had just been opened by Shuvalov, painting hundreds of heads, probably with the help of Russian pupils, of which 367, bought by Catherine II, still adorn an unusual room of the imperial residence of Peterhof. On his death in 1762, a considerable group of «fanciulle» and portraits – about forty in all – was sent to his heirs in Verona and they represent the corpus of models that would be copied, in increasingly banal fashion, in his native city. In Verona, however, and to an even greater extent in Venice, the real heirs of Rotari’s «fanciulle» would be the far more overtly mischievous «mascherine» by Felice Boscarati. Over time, though, many of these works seem to have gradually found their way from German and Russian collections to France and Italy."(c) read more...

    Max Peiffer Watenphul (1896 – 1976)-German painter

    Biography

    Blumenstilleben 1937



    "Max Peiffer Watenphul spent the period from October 1931 to July 1932 in Rome at the German Academy in the Villa Massimo, where other artists residing there at the time included Uli Nimptsch, Ernst Wilhelm Nay, Karl Rössing and Fritz Rhein. He also made friends with Ludwig Curtius, Bernhard Degenhart and Eckert Peterich. In July 1932 he visited Gaeta together with his sister Grace and Erika and Klaus Rössing. In 1933 he received the "Additional Award" of the Carnegie Institute, Pittsburgh, for a floral still-life. Travelling to Italy again in 1936, he visited Rome, Latina, Sorrento, Capri, Ischia and Sicily. By 1937 the situation in Germany was becoming more and more oppressive. His correspondence was intercepted and his paintings were confiscated from German museums: Nationalgalerie Berlin, Folkwang Museum Essen, Städtische Kunstsammlung Kassel, Städtische Kunsthalle Mannheim. The floral still-life, which had won him the Carnegie Award and had meanwhile been hanging in the Nationalgalerie Berlin, was shown in the Nazis’ notorious “Degenerate Art” exhibition in Munich in 1937. In the autumn of that same year, Max Peiffer Watenphul finally decided to move to Italy for good, to which end he was greatly helped by his half-sister Grace, who was married to the Roman architect Enrico Pasqualucci. It was also in that year that the artist’s parents moved to Essen, his stepfather having been prematurely retired from his post as headmaster for political reasons. In December 1937, Max Peiffer Watenphul travelled to the island of Ischia, where he met several German painters and intellectuals, including Werner Gilles, Rudolf Levy, Eduard Bargheer and the composer Gottfried von Einem. Heinrich Watenphul, Max’s stepfather, died in 1940.

    By 1941, Max Peiffer Watenphul was in such financial straits that he was obliged to return to Germany and take up a teaching post – obtained for him by Georg Muche – at the Krefeld School of Textile Design as the successor to Johannes Itten. He took over the drawing and painting class. Frequent visits were paid to Oskar Schlemmer in Wuppertal. In 1943, Peiffer Watenphul’s studio was destroyed in an air raid. The summer of that same year was spent in Vienna, whereupon he taught at the Arts and Crafts School in Salzburg until the winter of 1946. Max Peiffer Watenphul was to exercise an enormous influence on the young painters of Salzburg. As a German national, Peiffer Watenphul was refused permission to reside in Austria after 1946 and so he fled across South Tyrol to his half-sister in Venice, where he then lived for the next twelve years. He made friends with the painters Filippo De Pisis and Felice Carena and with the collector Peggy Guggenheim. His first solo exhibition since the end of the war took place in Venice in 1948. His first post-war travels to the south of Italy – to Rome, Naples, Caserta, Positano and Capri – were made in 1949. It was in Positano that he met up again with Karli Sohn-Rethel and Stefan Andres."

    Christian Rohlfs( 1849-1938)- German painter,
    one of the important representatives of German expressionism.

    Biography

    "After his years of study at the academy, Rohlfs' work was formed for twenty years by Impressionism, but at the age of sixty, he found a late expressionistic style. Favouring tempera on canvas and paper, he also created watercolours and prints.
    Several honours prove the approval of his later works. In 1929 the Christian Rohlfs Museum in Hagen was founded for the artist's 80th birthday. After the Nazis seized power Rohlfs was expelled from the Preußische Kunstakademie der Künste in 1937 and 412 of his paintings were rated "degenerate" and were removed from German museums.
    One year later, on 8 January 1938 Christian Rohlfs died in his studio in Hagen. He was remembered as one of the most important representatives of German Expressionism in art history."(c)
