More About this Item


Description: FREDERICK "Fritz" SOLOMON (1899-1980) German Expressionist artist. Original charcoal_drawing, unsigned,_ undated but circa 1939, approx. 9.5 x 13 in. paper. Unframed. Comes with biographical information. This is, without doubt, by Solomon and guaranteed to be so without a time limit. Solomon won the Mowbray Prize [1944] in London; was listed in WHO'S WHO IN ART [1954 London edition]. He studied art with such famous German artist's as: Max Liebermann, Martin Brandenburg, Eugene Spiro & Willy Jaeckel [Masterclass]. Exhibitions: Berlin, Cologne, Capetown, Haifa, London [Royal Academy], U.S., and in 1958 had one-man show at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Havana, Cuba. In 1956 several of his paintings were exhibited at the Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, Ohio. He died in the U.S. We purchased his personal papers and most of his drawings at his estate sale. His work is fairly scarce. The photos shown below DO NOT accompany this drawing and are not for sale. Also, showing below is a copy of Royal Academy of Arts notification that Samuel Courtauld has selected a painting by Solomon for purchase in 1945. Courtauld, who would died two tears later, was the founder of the Courtauld Art Institute in England. Courtauld had formed an important art collection including multiple works by Manet, Cezanne, Renoir etc., which he gave to the Courtauld and the Tate. He had purchased at least 5 paintings by Frederick Solomon and when he saw the painting JACOB at Solomon's exhibition at the JABE Gallery he ordered that the painting be sent to the TATE Gallery but he died a few days later and the purchase never took place. We will include a copy of the Royal Academy/Courtauld purchase document to the winning bidder. Fine.
