"Tulips: early still life by the Radziwiłł family"

Franz Radziwill


(1895 Strohhausen - 1983 Wilhelmshaven) Tulips. Very early still life by Radziwills with two long-stemmed tulips against a neutral background, created in 1924 shortly after his turn to Neue Sachlichkeit or Magical Realism, after he permanently settled in Dangast in 1923. In 1924, Radziwills participated in the jury-free art exhibition in Berlin with a special exhibition of 17 of his own paintings alongside works by Giorgio de Chirico, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, Otto Dix, and Wassily Kandinsky. In 1925, Radziwills had his first solo exhibition in Oldenburg with 60 works. Later, he revisited the tulip motif in several more extensive still life paintings, such as "Three Tulips" (1934/1935, Wvz. 411), "The Red Tulip" (1942, Wvz. 517), "Two Tulips" (1943, Wvz. 521), as well as in similar elongated vertical representations of flower stems like "Tulips Against Black and White" (1946, Wvz. 562) and "White Tulip" (1952, Wvz. 664). Watercolor and gouache on paper. Signed and monogrammed "Fr. R." on the reverse, with work number 201 and the date "1924" [sic.]. Stamped "Franz Radziwill (/) Nordseebad Dangast b. Varel i. O." and another round, illegible stamp. 27.3 cm x 17 cm. Framed.
