"Brittany, Beach" - original title

(1874 Breslau - 1972 New York) "Brittany, Beach". Original title. Painted with a broad, powerful brushstroke, this post-impressionistic motif by Spiros was created at the height of his artistic career. Spiros, a master student of Franz von Stuck, became a member of the Berlin Secession in 1904. In 1906, he went to Paris, where he stayed until 1914, neglecting his exhibition activities in Germany. In France, Spiros belonged to the circle of painters of the legendary "Café du Dôme", where his long-standing friendship with Hans Purrmann began and he was influenced by the post-impressionists, the Académie Matisse, and the Nabis. Also integrated into the art scene of the thirties, Spiros exhibited at the Salon d'Automne, founded in 1903, among others. Oil on cardboard (supplier's label of Schneider & Co. Inc., New York). Signed and dated (19)29. Inscribed on two exhibition labels on the reverse. 37.8 cm x 46 cm. Framed. Literature: Wilko von Abercron: Eugen Spiro - Mirror of his Century. Drachen Verlag, Alsbach 1990.
