Enjoying a Dance. Leopold Schmutzler (Bohemian-born German, 1864-1940). Oil on canvas.
By the turn of the century, Schmutzler had become one of the busiest portrait painters in Munich. He received important commissions from the Bavarian Royal Family, but also portrayed dancers and other popular performers. His style was generally realistic with Art-Deco elements. He always paid great attention to his subject’s clothing.
