Franz von Stuck - The Artist's Family
Franz Stuck, Franz und Mary in Atelier (detail), 1902.
MUNICH, GERMANY.-Museum Villa Stuck presents Franz von Stuck - The Artist's Family, an exhibition in collaboration with the family of Franz von Stuck, on view through February 26, 2006. Beginning 8 September 2005, a series of exhibitions will be presented in cooperation with the family of Franz von Stuck in the newly restored Old Atelier in the Villa Stuck. The first exhibition is dedicated to the artist's family and includes representative portraits by Stuck of his wife, daughter and stepdaughter. Among the works is a double-portrait of the artist and his wife Mary in the Old Atelier. Visible behind the couple is the infamous Sin Altar, the relief Dancers and the Red Chair, designed by Stuck himself. Thus, a unique compari-son is possible between the recently restored Old Atelier of today and Stuck's representation of more than a hundred years ago. The portrait of Stuck´s American wife Mary (1865-1929) reflects his reverence for one of the most beautiful and impressive women of Munich society. Franz von Stuck portrayed his beloved daughter Mary (1896-1961) continuously until his death. The engagement of Olga Lindpaintner (1884-1981), the daughter of Stuck's wife Mary, was occasion for the beautiful portrait of yet another family member. All three women were Stuck's favourite and most important models.
