Antique paintings from our stock
We present our customers a painting by a famous painter from Hannover and northern Low Saxony:
Ernst Pasqual Jordan (1858-1924) was an important personality in the art life of the city Hannover until 1920th. The painter had study at the School of Crafts (Werkunstschule) in Hannover, the School of Crafts (Kunstgewerbeschule) and the Akademy of Arts (Akademie der Künste) in Berlin. He created many paintings, graphics and also wall paintings. His motifs are architecture but also landscapes. This landscape painting is surely a depiction of the Lüneburger Heath, which has attracted many painters, local and living far away from this place. This painting has an interesting story: it was created before 1909, in that year it was presented at the 3. Fall Exhibition of Hannover Artists (3. Herbstausstellung Hannoverscher Künstler) in the Artist's House (Künstlerhaus) in Hannover. This exhibition was organized by the Art Society of Hannover (Kunstverein Hannover). Jordan was a member of this society since 1896, and since 1909 he was also a member of the executive committee of the society. After his death the painting was owned by the family until 1987, when is was sold by his great-grandchild. Now is on sale again.
The motif shows blossoming heather plants, between them juniper and other trees under a partly cloudy heaven. The brush stroke is quick, impressionistic, at the part with the big tree wielded with especially virtuosity. The paintig is created on hard cardboard and is framed with a precious, curved gold frame with a rich decor, which remains on the art of the 19th century. In the right lower corner is a hand written signature of the artist. Oil varnish slightly dark.
