Oskar Reinhart Collection 'Am Römerholz'

Hidden treasures of the Collection

Seldom shown art works in the collection are in the spotlight for a last time and for a short period only.

French Master, Captain François Laurent Lange, around 1830-48

The authorship of this representative portrait remains an unsolved puzzle. Despite its having been attributed to famous French painter Théodore Géricault (1791-1824), this assumption was challenged time and again. Details of the military uniform shown, as well as the inscription on the back of the painting, date the piece to after the latter's death. The powerful interplay of light and shadow, the dynamic handling of the paint, which is very thick in some areas, as well as the psychologizing depiction of the imposing figure's character attest to the artist's great skills.

Exhibition duration: March 8 - June 3, 2018
