Andreas H. Bitesnich is regarded as one of the best nude photographers in the world. His works are characterised by careful lighting, exceptional figural composition and a remarkable positioning of the subjects. By transforming physical forms and profiles in kinetic compositions he opens up for the viewer a completely unusual and surprising way of seeing.

Andreas Bitesnich says of his work “Something inside tells me that there is almost nothing more beautiful than a continuous rediscovery of the human body”. Moving bodies and physical control are what fascinate Bitesnich in his work. Dancers, sportsmen and women and acrobats serves as perfect models so as to depict perfect proportion and posture. The draped human art works that are occasionally placed on pedestals are reminiscent of sculptures although such poses are rather more inspired by painting. Nevertheless, the graphically sculptural compositions always take priority over the erotic instant.

FERDINAND SCHMUTZER

PORTRÄTS

PORTFOLIO WITH 15 Gelatin silver prints
strictly limited edition 1-45 / 45
selenium toner, 13 x 18 [approx. 5 x 7 inches] and 18 x 24 cm [approx. 7 x 10 inches],
Passepartouts: Museum mounting board, acid free in linen-covered box
Price: € 6.000,-
10% discount for members of the Friends of the Gallery Association

The photographs of this edition were printed from the original glass negatives from Ferdinand Schmutzer’s previously unpublished estate. Negative: original glass sizes from 9 x 12 cm [approx. 3½ x 4½ inches] to 18 x 24 cm [approx. 7 x 10 inches]



Ferdinand Schmutzer came from a Viennese family of artists. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, initially sculpture, then painting. However he soon turned to etching which he was introduced to by his teacher at the academy, William Unger. A state scholarship (the Rom Prize) allowed him a two year stay in Holland (1894-96). It seems that even then Schmutzer used the camera to capture his impressions in addition to his sketch pad. Unfortunately the artist was silent about the medium of photography. It can be assumed, however, that his portrait etchings always came from prior photo studies since body posture and tilt of the head often match the etched portraits.

Almost all the recently-discovered portrait photos prove Schmutzer to be a photographer of great talent who is a master excelling in the use of light and shadow. The artist made a series of portraits of important people in Viennese high society, art and culture as well as from politics and business. He also counted the nobility and the emperor amongst the clientele who commissioned his work. Even the 1899 portrait of the elderly watercolourist Rudolf von Alt can be considered a masterpiece pf photographic picture composition. Likewise in the full-body portrait of Karl Wittgenstein the dignified appearance of this great patron of the arts and father of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein is shown to its best advantage. On the other hand we encounter Arthur Schnitzler as a slightly surly-looking poet while Felix Salten returns our gaze smugly. Not only were there social gatherings in the Schmutzer household but also musical evenings to which famous artists were often invited, as the very introverted picture of cellist Pablo Casals shows. The image of violinist Fritz Kreisler on the other hand is reminiscent of early portraits by Nadar, the well-known French portrait photographer of the 19th century. The portrait of composer Richard Strauss presents us with a particularly elegant figure while the cheerfulness of the portrait of Leo Slezak is infectious making contact with the great singer very intimate.


One of the best portraits by Schmutzer is the picture of Albert Einstein. In this work the artist was able to transfer the naturalness and cheerful composure of the great physicist to the photographic image. The portrait of Sigmund Freud provides a contrast. His penetrating but also sad gaze refuses to let the viewer escape. An impressive and distressing portrait is the image of Ferdinand Schmutzer’s father. In this photograph the artist has captured with his camera “what cannot be seen from the outside, the transcendental in reality”. The picture of the German Emperor Wilhelm II reveals much more of the subject’s status – Schmutzer depicts him with pathos and a stiff dignity. The portrait of Emperor Karl I is distinctly more understated and was probably taken only a few months before the death of Emperor Franz Joseph I.

Ferdinand Schmutzer was not only a recognised etcher and copperplate engraver but also an extremely gifted photographer. The way in which he uses perspective and composes with light and shadow provides proof of his technical mastery, great skill and artistic sensibility that are melded together in his work into a unity. As rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna (1922-24) he remained true to this tradition but he passed on his knowledge to his students with great enthusiasm.

FRANZ HUBMANN

WALDVIERTEL

WestLicht was able to convince Franz Hubmann during his lifetime to make an edition of selected Waldviertel photographs. Those interested are being offered a unique opportunity to acquire one of Franz Hubmann’s works from a limited edition of 15 prints at a price much less than their current market value. Each of the twenty motifs, size 40 x 50 cm (approx. 16 x 20 inches), acid-free passepartout, 4c print was hand signed by Prof. Franz Hubmann.
Price: € 660,- incl. VAT
(10% discount for members of the Friends of the Gallery Association)


Franz Hubmann, the doyen of Austrian photo journalism documented people, landscapes and culture for decades. One of the constants in his oeuvre is his close interest in Waldviertel. With a keen eye and a great love of the region his photographs allow us insights into the archaic woodlands on the Austrian borders which have always enthralled him and which he has said are a “formative landscape of the soul”. Franz Hubmann has captured the unique beauty and the peaceful attraction of Waldviertel in atmospheric images. They communicate impressions of its raw character, influenced by the forest, stones and water, the loneliness of the woods, the flowering poppy fields and the decaying architecture.

An accompanying photo book was published. “Franz Hubmann. Waldviertel” is available in a numbered, signed, limited special edition of 500 for 49.- Euros. It is also available in the standard edition for 39.- Euros.
