Otto Eichinger
Austrian, (1922-2004)

A Jug of Ale
Oil on board, signed
10 inches x 8 inches

Otto Eichinger was born in Vienna in 1922 the son of the portrait painter Erwin Eichinger. He was the third generation of artists in his family and it is very likely that he was influenced by his father as their artistic styles and subject matter are very similar. He studied art at the academies of Vienna and Munich and afterwards went on to study Lithography but decided to pursue painting as a career at the end of the war. Like his father, he specialised in finely detailed portraits of Bavarian men, Cardinals and Rabbis often using a magnifying glass to assist him. The painting is housed in a new, English made gilt frame which is in excellent condition.

Price £1,250
