Heinrich Linde-Walther (1868-1939): Academic Study of a Nude Boy


Self Portrait of the artist


Auktionshaus Stahl, Hamburg, DE, introduced this beautiful Impressionistic Academic study of a nude boy by the well known German artist Heinrich Linde-Walther (1868-1939) in their recent auction catalog. I am not a big fan of Impressionism, (taxes my attention deficit disorder too much --- ooh, look over there... shiny!) but this painting really drew in my artistic eye, especially in the very competent way the artist has used color with that beautiful brushwork. Heinrich Eduard Linde-Walther was the brother of another well known German artist, Herman Linde. Linde-Walther studied at the Munich Academy and later at the Academie Julian in Paris. He was later a Professor at the Art Academy Lubeck.



Here is a small sampling of his mature works:
