Selbst in arkadischer Landschaft. Wohl 1940 s.
Oil on canvas.

Bruno Seener was born in Nuremberg in 1893. The graphic artist and portrait painter presumably settled in Dresden and Chemnitz respectively in the 1930s and was mainly active for the church and municipal institutiobns. The ceiling painting in Hubertus church in Dresden and the winged altar of St. Anthony in Chemnitz were executed by Bruno Senners. His graphic works were showcased at, for instance the 'Museum for Visual Arts' in Leipzig in 2006 in context of the exhibition "Faust und Mephisto", which also comprised works by Ernst Barlach and Max Slevogt. Unfortunately, little is known about the career and the creation of Bruno Seeners - an artist living, working and teaching in the bustling art metropolis Dresden - and just waiting to be discovered
Good overall impression. Horizontal bar of stretcher slightly pushhing through. Isolated cracks. With three small, skillfully retouched and partly rebacked canvas blemishes. Canvas slightly wavy and presumably with a few faint overpainted spots.
