Lot description
Akt / Bildnis Alice. 1926.
Oil on canvas.
Scheibler 23. Signed and dated on the reverse. 94 x 74 cm (37 x 29.1 in).
The over-painted nude was not exposed before 2013 (posthumous). [CH].
• Painted on both sides.
• This double portrait is of very personal importance for E. W. Nay and also has a delicate note, as it shows both his former fianceé Alice Lichtenberger and presumably his later wife Helene (Elly) Kirchner (1901-1986).
• The nude was only discovered and exposed a few years ago.
• Particularly early work from the artist's study days with Karl Hofer at the Berlin University of the Arts.
• The catalog raisonneé (Aurel Scheibler, Cologne 1990) still identifies the whereabouts of the painting as "unknown"
.
