Portrait of a Young Girl, by Anton Filkuka (1888-1957). Oil on Canvas.

Filkuka’s academic portrait is rendered in a rich palette of colors that highlight the beauty and innocence of its young sitter. The white textured lace of her smock catches the light, and her golden locks of hair frame her delicate facial features and offset her deep blue eyes and soft, sensual mouth. Signed lower left. Original gold gilt carved XIXth century Austrian frame.

Commentary

"Filkuka was born in Vienna and studied at the Arts Academy in Vienna. His works were exhibited at the Kunstlerhaus and at the Albrecht Durer-Bund in Vienna. During his lifetime he was awarded the Honorary Golden Albrecht Durer Medal and received the distinguished title of Professor. His paintings have been exhibited in Dusseldorf, New York, Melbourne, Geneva, and Stockholm.
Filkuka is a classicist in every sense of the word, adapting a highly academic style to his portraits, landscapes and genre paintings. His color harmonies are methodically calculated, and the richness of his palette adds light and sensuality to his compositions. His descriptive works fall very neatly into the realm of realistic representation, although the influence of Post Impressionists such as Manet resonates in his use of overall color as a backdrop in his paintings. The use of light as a modulator of color and transparency underscores his deep understanding of the techniques of Impressionism as well.
