Antique PAUL THUMANN "Art Wins Heart " ( Kunst Bringt Gunst )
Hand gouache painted on Photographic print !

OK... When i saw it first, it fooled me, i thought its an original gouache/water color painting. (I am an Artist and Photographer)
Then, i have realized that it is hand painted /colored photographic print.

This technique was popular around 1900 - 1920.
First they printed original painting's Black and White photograph, then painted it as in the original !

Its glued on Litho (Only "Paul Thumann") printed backing paper...Print has varnish on it (Original. Tiny cracks visible if you use magnifier)
* Print: 19 3/4" x 15,5"
Backing: 18" x 23"...........Somehow, long time ago, an framer glued mat on front of backing...There was dry glues which i have removed...
* Print / painting is in good condition. Bright colors and nice painting details !
* Its Beautiful !
* On the right bottom corner there is a red sign of painter of the print ! (with gouache )

Friedrich Paul Thumann (1834-1908)

Paul Thumann was born at Tachacksdeft, Lusatia, October 5, 1834. After going through the usual school duties he studied for an illustrator,
and it was through books and periodicals that the public first made the acquaintance of his graceful figures. He studied for several years in the Dresden Academies under Julius Huber,
working at Leipsic as an illustrator from 1860 until 1863. It was not until his work as an illustrator was an established fact that he commenced his studies under Pauwels, in Weimar,
and entered that special world supposed to be habituated only by knights of the brush. In 1865 he visited Italy, making a careful and conscientious study of the old masters.
During the year 1866 he studied in England, where he received many important commissions. In 1867 he went to France for a year's study.
Upon his return from Paris he became professor of the Weimar Art School, a position which he filled so acceptably that he was called to the Dresden Academy in 1872,
where he occupied a similar position. In 1879 he became director of the Berlin Academy, and during the same year was awarded the Berlin gold medal.
His great success as a teacher has made him widely known throughout the world.
