Georg Waltenberger (born August 14, 1865 in Blieskastel, died February 5, 1961 in Berchtesgaden) was a very important Portrait and History German painter who, during his long 70-odd years as an artist, captured the faces of the most distinguished men of letters, politics and science in Germany (such people as Bernhard von Bülow in front of the Reichstag and researchers (and inventors) such as Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen and Rudolf Diesel).

He painted some 600 Portraits and his oil paintings fetch around Eur 1,500 whenever they appear in auction houses!
In the present work (40 x 50 cms)---in a gold embossed "period" frame--- he captures the character of his 'soul-mate', his wife, using a very "expressive" palette, the domed velvet hat and black dress accentuating the features of the woman.

  • Painting had condition issues that should have been disclosed but were not: canvas was repaired with superimposed tape; extensive inpainting right background; revarnishing showing bubblewrap marks.

    Response by seller
    Your response to me was that you would not give either a negative or a neutral Feedback---and now you have "gone back on your word"!

    A "negative" Feedback by it's very nature is intended to damage a seller's reputation and his credability with the auction house of Catawiki and is a very hurtful thing to do on another well-intentioned seller.

    I for my part have taken extreme pains and trouble to respond and answer all our critique re the painting, only now to receive this 'negative' and non-productive Feedback.

    You would do yourself (as giving me your 'word') and myself a big favour to extract this nagative Feedback as it will only leave a very unpleasant memory of this transaction and serve no earthly purpose to either of us!
