This year, Anthony Blumka and I invite you once again to visit us at TEFAF in Maastricht. Twenty years ago, as TEFAF dealers from the very outset, we first started to present our most beautiful works of art together on a joint stand. This is a wonderful anniversary for us, of which we are very proud.
Julius Boehler is presenting a key work by Hans Leinberger at TEFAF Maastricht 2019 together with a dedicated publication.
This work of art is a fitting reflection of our long-standing and successful cooperation. More than eighteen years ago we came across a pair of angels, made of wood, for sale on the art market in England. Despite the thick layers of paint that had been applied at a later date, their expressive poses let us hope that they could be a work by one of the most important artists in this field. On removing the paint, a masterly and delicate carving of exceptional quality came to light. The artistic handwriting soon led us to the southern German woodcarver Hans Leinberger. In 2002 we wanted to present the two figures at a joint show in Tony’s gallery for the first time. A private collector in New York, however, had already seen the angels in an exhibition catalogue and was so fascinated that he bought them before the opening, after seeing them briefly, and took them home with him.
For Anthony Blumka and me it is a great pleasure to be able to show you these magnificent sculptures now, for the first time on the public stage, at TEFAF. They testify to the masterly skill of this unique sculptor who was way ahead of his time.
A catalogue is being published and an e-book made that place the two heavenly cherubs within the context of the work of this important artist, about whom little information has been handed down.
