Heinrich Nauen - Kornweihe

This painting originates from the possession of the former ranger of the beech forest at Dilborn castle in the lower Rhine region, where the artist couple Heinrich Nauen and Marie von Malachowski lived from 1911 to 1931. It is difficult to decipher the painting's date. According to Klara Drenker-Nagels, the painting was probably created in the 1920s. At the time when the catalogue raisonné was compiled, the painting was not yet known - particularly due to the fact that it had been in family possession at that time and was never exhibited.
We would like to thank Klara Drenker-Nagels, Bonn, for her additional confirmatory information. The painting is registered at the August Macke Haus, Bonn.
Gift from the artist to the previous owner, since then in family possession, Rhineland
