Lot Essay

Dr. Michael Koch, Munich, has confirmed the authenticity of this work.


Alexander Kanoldt is best known for his work of the 1920s and his contribution to the Neue Sachlichkeit movement. Paintings from as early as 1910 are rare. With its vivid colours and free handling of paint the present early work relates closely to Jawlensky and the Fauve artists whose work Kanoldt had seen for the first time at the second exhibition of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München in 1910. In 1912 Kanoldt was to write of Jawlensky, "that he owed him much thanks for his own development" (Exh. cat., Alexander Kanoldt, Freiburg im Breisgau, 1987, p. 18).
