Lot 0132 Details

Description
Oil on canvas, framed. Featuring a landscape scene. Signed and attr. Hans Purrmann (German, 1880-1966) on the lower left corner. Picture size: 29 x 36 cm (11.4 x 14.2 inches), frame size: 38.5 x 45.5 cm (15.2 x 17.9 inches). Hans Purrmann was a German artist. He was born in Speyer where he also grew up. He completed an apprenticeship as a scene painter and interior decorator, and subsequently studied in Karlsruhe and Munich before going to Paris in 1906. It was here he became a student and later a friend of Henri Matisse whom he set up a painting school with.

He lived there until 1943, then in Montagnola (Switzerland). He died in Basel. Typical of Purrmann's style are colourful, sensitively painted landscapes, still lifes and portraits. There are large collections of his works in Langenargen Museum and in the Purrmann House, Speyer. PROVENANCE: Southern Ontario estate
