About

A delicate, Art Deco derived, figural landscape showing a man seated on a riverbank with a stag standing in a copse of trees and wild horses playing in the distance. Signed lower right, 'Kay H. Nebel' for Kay Heinrich Nebel (German, 1888-1953) and dated November 9, 1915. After graduating with honors from an apprenticeship as an art and decoration painter in Hamburg, Nebel studied at the school of the Museum of Applied Arts in Berlin under Max Friedrich Koch. Study trips took him to Paris and Italy in 1911 and 1912. In 1913 Nebel accompanied an expedition with filmmaker and adventurer Hans Schomburgk to Liberia, West Africa, Togo and Sudan. After military service at the front in the First World War, Nebel taught figurative drawing at the School of Applied Arts in Darmstadt before joining the faculty at the Staatliche Kunstakademie in Kassel in 1921. Nebel joined the Darmstadt Sezession movement in 1919 and was an important representative for the New Objectivity movement. Nebel earned recognition in the eponymous exhibition in 1925 in Mannheim and in 1926 he was commissioned by the Prussian Ministry of Culture for a mural.
