Tommy Todtmann. 1885

Oil on canvas. 105,5 × 80 cm. (41 ½ × 31 ½ in.) Signed and dated lower left (incised into the wet paint): M. Pietschmann Novbr. 85.  [3506]

ProvenanceFrom the estate of the artist

Addendum/ErratumRecent findings suggest that Thomas “Tommy” Todmann was born on 8.4.1877 and started to work as a model at the Dresden Academy in 1921. This implies that the portrayed man is another (older) model at the Academy. We would like to thank Matthias Müller, Radebeul, for kindly providing this important information.
