Johann von Stein ( 1896 - 1965) - Portret van een elegante Dame
Pastel - Hand signed - jaren 30

Stunning portrait of an elegant classic woman with a penetrating look, powerful and passionately painted.

Johann Anton Willebrord von Stein studied in Delft and became head of the design studio of the printing company Rotagravure in Leiden, where he designed posters and programs. Von Stein has also designed a lot for the weekly magazine "De Reclame". Outside of his work for Rotagravure and weekly magazine "De Reclame”, he was best known as an art and portrait painter. 

For example, clients for the design of posters were Philips, AVRO, the ANWB, Avifauna and the municipality of Naarden. He is also known for his Rotterdam Lloyd posters, which are still available as reproductions everywhere. 

(This is a large piece, so it should be picked up, if you live near Amsterdam, then I can bring it along for a small fee).
