More information about this Work

On the back of Portrait of Elfriede Hausmann he painted in 1929 a Portrait of Young Scottish Lady, which follows the realist principles of Felixmüller's new art, whose enthusiasm for realism led him down the path of the "new objectivism". Thus, the painting in the Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza Collection offers the two faces of the German painter, the harsh and the soft aspect of the portrait, the figure adjusted to the ideal of the crystalline inorganic matter and the pictorial representation of the organic modelling which he offers in the second portrait.
