Oil Sketches, Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture
Daxer & Marschall has brought together an exciting and diverse selection of Oil Sketches, Paintings, Drawings and Sculpture. It showcases different schools and periods from the seventeenth century to the early twentieth century. A cross-section consciously shaped to stimulate collectors' and art lovers' curiosity.
Romantic painting is strongly represented, with a particularly fine selection of works by the Norwegians Johan Christian Dahl and Peder Balke as well as the Swede Otto Hesselbom and the German Carl Gustav Carus.
Twentieth century art focuses on important works by Max Liebermann, Lovis Corinth and we take pride in featuring two great early 20th-century women artists – Lotte Laserstein and Helene Schjerfbeck, both recently honored with important exhibitions. Helene Schjerfbeck at London's Royal Academy in October 2019. Lotte Laserstein in 2018 in the Städel Museum, Frankfurt and in Berlin.
The Carrara marble portrait relief of Elisabeth, Crown Princess of Prussia, 1834-7, is a particulary fine work by Christian Daniel Rauch (1777-1857) one of the foremost sculptors in early 19th century Prussia.
