Wilhelm Gallhof (German, 1878-1918)
Nude Before a Mirror
oil on canvas
housed in an early 20th century frame
25 x 17.25 in. (sight)
Wilhelm Gallhof was a German impressionist painter who died suddenly in WWI, but previously was heavily exhibited in Paris. He is perhaps best known for his nudes, in particular "The Coral Chain," which sold recently in 2011 to much fanfare in Berlin.
This is an exceedingly rare example of Gallhof's work in oil, as he passed at the age of 40.
A few small flakes in the upper left center and upper center edge. Two very small areas of overpainting, otherwise the painting does not appear to have ever been restored. Never lined.
