Saxony: Prominent newcomer acquired for the Dresden Albertinum

Dresden (dpa/sn) - The Dresden State Art Collections (SKD) have acquired the earliest known portrait of Oskar Zwintscher's (1870-1916) wife from a private collection. After conservation measures, it can be seen in the Albertinum's exhibition "Escape from the World and Modernity. Oskar Zwintscher in Art around 1900" until January 15, 2023, as the General Management announced on Tuesday. With the portrait "The Artist's Wife as a Young Girl" from 1894, the museum now owns 17 works by the painter, so that his oeuvre can now be understood in an even more extensive form.

According to the SKD, Adele played an exceptional role in the work of the artist, who met her when he moved to Meissen at the end of 1892 after completing his studies at the Dresden Art Academy. In 1898 the two married. Up until his death, Zwintscher created numerous portraits of his wife, some of which are among his major works.

Zwintscher grew up in Leipzig, studied there and in Dresden, then worked freelance in Meißen and taught in Dresden from 1903.
