Wilhelm Gail-Attrib. "Interior of Castle Sigmaringen", Hohenzollern Collection, Monumental Oil, 1850s 25000 EUR
Wilhelm Gail-Attrib. "Interior of Castle Sigmaringen", Hohenzollern Collection, Monumental Oil, 1850s
This magnificently framed large oil painting shows a 19th-century interior of a room of the Castle Sigmaringen with persons dressed in costumes of the 17th-century. Castle Sigmaringen was a residence of the family of Prince Hohenzollern (German royal family) and is situated at the Lake Constance/Bodensee (German-Swiss-Austrian border). A part of the castle inventory was sold at the Sotheby's auction in Castle Monrepos near Ludwigsburg "Ancestral Attics", 9.-14. October 2000, and this painting was acquired by our gallery (lot 1049 of this sale). The painting is unsigned, but shows all stylistic criteria of interior paintings by working in this region well-known Munich artist Wilhelm Gail (1804-1890). Our images nr.22-26 with comparisons convincingly support this attribution.
Wilhelm Gail (1804 Munich - 1890 Munich) was a very well known German painter, graphic artist, etcher and lithographer. At first, in 1817, he began studying architecture under Karl von Fischer. Then, in 1820, he entered the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, and, in 1822-1825 was a pupil of his brother-in-law - famous Munich artist Peter von Hess. At first occupied with painting genre scenes from Bavarian folk life, he then devoted himself (during the Italian stay of 1825-1827) to architectural paintings (vedute). In 1830 Gail visited Paris and Normandy; in 1831-32 lived again in Italy, and, in 1832-33 - in Spain, after which he permanently settled in Munich, where he spent the next following years reworking his travel impressions into oil paintings (among others, various Venetian cityscapes, motifs of Alhambra, etc., as well as etchings and lithographic folios).
