Lot description
Fünf stehende Akte / Skizze nach "Hochzeit des Boccaccio degli Adimari und der Lisa da Ricasoli". Um 1927 and 1927 (verso).
Chalks- and charcoal drawing.
With the estate stamp of the Kunstmuseum Basel (Lugt 1570 b) and the hand-written registration number "Ko 16". Verso inscribed "Unbekannter florentinischer Meister um 1420 / Hochzeit des Boccacio Adimari, Detail, Florenz, Akademie" by a hand othern than that of the artist. On light smooth board. 34.2 x 48.7 cm (13.4 x 19.1 in), size of sheet.
Kirchner sketched the splendid treasure chest picture by the Maestro del Cassone Adimari "Wedding of Boccaccio degli Adimari and Lisa da Ricasoli" (around 1420/1450, Galleria dell’Accademia, Florence) on verso of the characteristic multi-figure nude scene from 1927. Kirchner was presumably fascinated by Italian 15th century treasure chest pictures for the gracious depictions of the figures and also because of his deep interest in furniture design. [CH].
• With drawings on both sides.
• In terms of posture the two figures touching each other in Kirchner's charcoal drawing on verso call reminiscence of the painting "Drei nackte junge Männer. Im Stadion" from 1932/1936 (Gordon 967)
• Characteristic, multi-figure depiction in which Kirchner creates a very dynamic scene with just a few intensive and accomplished lines.
• Verso with an impressive juxtaposition of Kirchner's modernity and his examination of art history
.
