Albert Anker

100 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #4878
Realism   •   Albert Anker @ Wikipedia

Albert Anker is considered one of the most prominent representatives of realistic genre painting in Switzerland.

Touching everyday scenes, preferably with children, are his passion and give him fame, recognition and numerous assignments. His two-year study of theology can also be regarded as the foundation stone for the intensive attention to social issues such as his examination of the teachings of the Swiss Jean-Jaques Rousseau and Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi.

After graduating, Anker gave in to his passion and went to Paris to study art. Especially the works of Nicolas Poussin impressed the painter. He soon exhibited his own works in the Paris Salon on a regular basis, which was an honor and was a guarantee of success for every artist of his time. The children in Anker's works are engrossed in their occupations, they follow them without haste but lively and happy.

The picture "The grandfather tells a story" from the year 1884 shows an idyllic village scene, which reveals the harmonic coexistence of the inhabitants in the everyday life. Banned the four children hang on the lips of the grandfather, who obviously has an exciting story to tell. A peaceful moment captured by the painter and enviously captured by the viewer. How much you would like to sit in this harmonious circle. At an advanced age Anker suffered a stroke that resulted in paralysis of his right hand. Nevertheless, he painted, albeit in a reduced technique, almost ten years, until his death. © Meisterdrucke
