Price on request
A charming oil painting on canvas of a beautiful young lady by the famous German artist Leopold Schmutzler (1864-1941). The Bohemian-born painter specialized in portraits, semi-erotic female figures, and Rococo-style genre scenes.
By the turn of the century, Schmutzler had become one of the busiest portrait painters in Munich. He received important commissions from the Bavarian Royal Family, but also portrayed dancers and other popular performers. In fact, one of his best-known portraits was of the actress Lili Marberg (1876–1962) in the role of Salome.
Our painting was obtained from the estate of a wealthy English playboy from the 1930s.
