Junge Zac wie der Geist des Sieges
Auf der Grundlage von den Geist des Sieges von Franz von Stuck




Der Geist des Sieges
Franz von Stuck



Stuck was born at Tettenweis, in Bavaria.
From an early age he displayed an affinity for drawing and caricature.
To begin his artistic education he relocated in 1878 to Munich, where he would settle for life. From 1881 to 1885 Stuck attended the Munich Academy.
Stuck's subject matter was primarily from mythology, inspired by the work of Arnold Böcklin.
Large forms dominate most of his paintings and indicate his proclivities for sculpture. His seductive female nudes are a prime example of popular Symbolist content.
Stuck paid much attention to the frames for his paintings and generally designed them himself with such careful use of panels, gilt carving and inscriptions that the frames must be considered as an integral part of the overall piece.

Christen Købke - 1810-1848



Christen Schiellerup Købke (26 May 1810 – 7 February 1848), Danish painter, was born in Copenhagen to Peter Berendt Købke, a baker, and his wife Cecilie Margrete.
Købke, a national romantic, painted portraits, landscapes and architectural paintings.
Most of Købke’s portraits show friends, family members and fellow artists.
He found most of his motifs in his immediate surroundings.
Now he is recognized internationally for his well composed and harmonic paintings, for their coloristic qualities and for his sense of the everyday life. But in his lifetime he was almost forgotten, especially because of his early death and limited production.
Despite his talent and the praise of various contemporaries, Købke had never been inundated with commissions.
Købke is recognized today as one of the most talented among Denmark’s Golden Age painters and the most internationally renowned Danish painter of his generation.
