Lot 364Pippel, Otto. The Ludwigstraße in Munich, Germany
"Ludwigstraße in Munich" views of the Odeonsplatz with the feldherrnhalle and the theatiner Church on the right and the festival hall of the residence on the left. Signed lower right. On the stretcher frame on the Studio label of the artist titled. Oil on canvas 64.5 x 85 cm. Restoration. Frame damaged A decisive influence on the painting style of the young artist Otto Pippel Gotthard Kuehl in Dresden had certainly, in the Pippel perfected his skills after training in Strasbourg and Karlsruhe. In 1909, Pippel settled permanently in Planegg, near Munich, and travelled in the same year to Paris, where he came up with the art of the Impressionists in touch. This should imprint him stylistically, lasting until the end of his life. In addition to French and North Italian motifs, landscapes of his native Bavaria, in his work, in addition to intimate interior scenes with festive banquets and Soirees, presentations of guest performances of the Bolshoi ballet in the German Theater or the popular beer and coffee garden scenes are to be found mainly. Pippels pastose painting technique lives by the resolution of the contour and the shape by the color. He creates atmospheric, and by the light of certain compositions make his paintings distinctive. In blinding, shimmering light, the artist appears in the present painting, the street scene in front of the Odeonsplatz. With wide strokes he applies the colour quickly, characterizes most of the different surfaces and uses a few, all the more dramatic-looking red-and-green accents in the playing of awnings, Façade ornaments, the copper roofs of the Church and of the flags. Literature: Reiner, Hermann, Otto Pippel 1878-1960 - A contribution to the German impressionism. Babenhausen 1980, illustration 62: this painting (with minimal conflicting and reversed dimensions 85 x 65 cm).
