Bolesław Szańkowski (1873 – 1953)

Bolesław Szańkowski. Portrait of a young glamorous lady with a summer hat in the wind, 1936

Porównując z poprzednio pokazanym portretem Trębacza, Bolesław Szańkowski potrafił malować kobiety i wydobyc z nich kobiecość jaka interesuje płeć przeciwną. Jest i ten wzrok i rozchylone usta, obnażone plecy, kapelusz i powiewający welon, interesująca ustawiona poza modela, oszczędna kolorystyka. Wycena tej pracy jest bardzo jednak zawyżona ale tak jest zawsze w Schloss Ahlden. Za 2,000 euro byłby to dobry zakup.

Lot 1350. Boleslaw von Szankowski (1873 Warsaw – 1953 Fischbachau). Portrait of a young glamorous lady with a summer hat in the wind. Szankowski’s representative work executed in a fast, soft-pastose style, probably from the 1930s/40s. Boleslaw von Szankowski first studied at the Academy in Krakow, then in 1894 at the Munich Academy under Johann C. Herterich (1894) and in 1896-1898 in Paris (at the Académie Colarossi and Académie Julian), among others under Benjamin Constant. Around 1906-1912 he settled permanently in Munich, where he took part in the annual exhibitions in the Glass Palace from 1906-1925. In 1928 and 1939 he had large individual exhibitions in Warsaw. From Munich he travelled through Europe and the USA; as a respected portraitist he painted many representative portraits of personalities of society, the aristocracy and European ruling families. In addition, he liked to create female nudes, idealized, refined, partly erotic depictions of female beauties and graceful, elegant ladies as well as sensitive, graceful portraits of children (often depicting his daughters). Oil/wood panel. L. o. signed; 67.5 cm x 55.5 cm. Frame. /V/Oil on panel. Signed. Estimate $9,500. Schloss Ahlden. 09/06/20
