Vienna 1802 - 1875 Vienna
Two girls in white dress in landscape
Oil on panel, 25 x 20,5 cm, in original frame
Fertbauer was a student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna from 1816 to 1826 and later participated (in the 30ies and 40ies) in the exhibition at St. Anna organized by the academy. His style differs from his contemporaries by his detailed and realistic descriptions. He painted in such a way that one cannot find traces of the brush strokes - reminiscent to the medieval technique revived by the romantic painteres (i.e. the "Nazarener").
The double portrait of the girls represents the siblings Marie and Tina Leiden (painted according to Thieme-Becker in 1838).
