The Artist at his Studio, Anthony Oberman, 1820

The Artist at his Studio, Anthony Oberman, 1820

oil on canvas, h 36cm × w 43.5cm. More details

A little nervously, the painter watches as his visitor reviews his latest painting. To judge from the name on the portfolio, this is Oberman himself. All the attributes an artist might need lay spread about the studio: plaster models, to the left on the table, a pestle to grind pigments, while the powder mixed with oil was preserved in the pig’s bladders on the chimneypiece.
