The Art History Mystery Challenge

Welcome to our totally disorganized art museum! The challenge is to help us identify all the masterworks in our virtual museum. We'll post a piece of the painting and one clue to get you started. Can you name the artist and the title of the painting?

Pieces of the painting and clues to the artist's identity will be added every 24 hours until we have a winner, then the next painting in our collection will be posted. Feel free to use any resources at your disposal to help in your search. Challenge winners will receive a shiny award badge that we will add below their profile image. You will retain this award until someone else wins the award.

The AHM Challenge is open to all forum members, not just ws oil painters, so join in and have some fun with us!

If you would like to host a AHM Challenge painting; please send a PM to the Challenge Moderator Callie to receive instructions and notice when to post your painting. Be prepared to check in frequently while hosting a challenge!



Clue = Nationality - German

Just spent all evening doing the work I meant to do this afternoon. I took one little break for the AHM and, well... a few minutes (hours) later....

No luck so far, even though this one does have what I thought would be a big help waving there in the exposed corner

Callie, Good to hear you tried so early in the game. I think the birth date will help. Smile



Clue = Born in 1815

Andreas Aschenbach (also spelled Achenbeck)

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andreas_Achenbach

Andreas Achenbach (September 29, 1815 – April 1, 1910) was a German landscape painter.

Born at Kassel, he began his art education in 1827 in Düsseldorf under Friedrich Wilhelm Schadow at the Düsseldorf Academy of Painting. He studied at St Petersburg and travelled in Italy, Holland and Scandinavia.[1] In his early work he followed the pseudo-idealism of the German romantic school, but on removing to Munich in 1835, the stronger influence of Louis Gurlitt turned his talent into new channels, and he became the founder of the German realistic school. Although his landscapes evince too much of his aim at picture-making and lack personal temperament, he is a master of technique, and is historically important as a reformer. The Chambers Biographical Dictionary says of him that "he was regarded as the father of 19th century German landscape painting."

A number of his finest works are to be found at the Berlin National Gallery, the New Pinakothek in Munich, and the galleries at Dresden, Darmstadt, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Hamburg.

He died in Düsseldorf.

His brother, Oswald Achenbach (1827-1905), was also a painter.

Good job Judy!
I tried solving this without looking by birth date (hasn't really helped me before). I looked under German landscapes, seascapes, historical paintings, historical paintings + netherlands/holland, German/Dutch battle scenes..... even the Dutch flag didn't help!
How does the Father of German Landscape Painting not come up in a search of German Landscape Painting

I like how he did the water and tree in this.

It was a little confusing because different places listed his name in two different spellings. Actually the birth date let me right to him. I just said German Artists born in 1815. I've tried that before but was not lucky. This time it led me right to him.
