Two Arabian Riders
Oil on canvas, mounted on panel (parquetted). 82.5 x 67 cm.
Signed lower right: ad. Schreyer.
The present painting shows in its motif, its brushstroke, and its palette a very close link to the previous lot, the painting entitled “Arabian Horseman by a Ford”.
In his paintings with Oriental themes, Schreyer did not have a didactic intention, but aimed to depict the harmony of horse and rider, the integration of the figures and the animal in the foreground into the landscape. The charm of this work lies in the mood that Schreyer conveys in his depiction.
We are grateful to Dr. Christoph Andreas who after first hand examination confirmed the authenticity of this painting.
