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