About

"Horse Drawn Carriage {Vehicle (Pferdefuhrwerk)}" Julius Paul Junghanns (German, 1876-1958) Oil on wood 10 3/4 x 8 1/2 (15 3/4 x 13 1/2 frame) inches Translation of the text found on the verso: For the Protection Festival (rifle fest or shooting fest- “Schutzenfest”) of 1951 By the St. Sebastianus Guardian Society Lohausen-Stockum (borough of Dusseldorf, Germany) Julius Paul Junghanns was a highly revered animalier portrait painter, particularly that of cattle and horses though he also painted the portraits of his three children with their family dogs. The style he develops is very close to the Barbizoniers. Junghanns much preferred painting in plein air and in his compositions, he enhances the very close relationship between humans and animals; a bond characterized by very intense emotions and sensations that influenced his real and artistic life. Cattle were considered a very important resource and a sure parameter for evaluating the wealth of rural society. Families raised livestock with care and dedication because it was the main source of livelihood. Junghanns attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden and continued his specialization in Munich where he moved from 1899, he was a student of Heinrich Von Zugel, when he began his course of studies, he knew exactly what he wanted to become ... an Animalier painter, this desire stayed true for the rest of his life. He obtained numerous medals and awards for his works, was appointed a member of the Bund Deutschen Zeichneder Kunstler commission in Munich, and later joined the Bildender Kunstler Sezession Association in Munich. He also was distinguished in the field of academic teaching as he was appointed Director of the Chair of Animalier and Plein Air Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf where he remained there for over 40 years. Junghanns is a well-known painter in Germany, Europe and the world over. Many of his works are part of private collections and are exhibited in art galleries and museums in Berlin, Hagen, Munich, Düsseldorf, Bonn, Gdansk, Konigsberg, Krefeld, Chemnitz, Karlsruhe, Manheim, Vienna, London, Madrid, Antwerp, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Boston, etc. This level of internationality is especially notable considering his artistic career coincided with the restrictive period of the Third Reich. Junghanns devoted himself to subjects of the animalier genre, linked to everyday life while maintaining a dense and very accentuated symbolic meaning. In his finest works, nature played an undisputed role of protagonist. In 1958 his funeral took place with a very large audience in attendales about his life. To date there is no single archive that encompasses all the works starting from his numerous sketches to his paintings and small scenes. Distinguished professors and students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Dusseldorf paid homage to him, and the newspapers featured numerous articles that maintain a vision of artistic integrity and a testimony to his skill and devotion. His works of art can be found in public and private collections internationally.
