Joseph Karl Stieler: Painting "Goethe" (1828) in a frame

It is probably the most famous Goethe´s picture today, and it would have quite suited "the Olympian": On 4th of June 1828, Stieler was for more than one week in Weimar and the first sketches were done - Goethe wrote to Christian Friedrich Tieck: "The Bavarian royal court painter, Mr. Stieler reached far forward; I would rather not speak and judge about this, however I can say at least that I have to deem it a great stroke of luck to see my memory preserved in this way."

The "Court painter Mr. Stieler" is Joseph Karl Stieler (1781-1858), an important representative of classical painting and famous for his works in the "Beauty-Gallery" in Munich, which was created according to the commission of Ludwig the First of Bavaria. This portrait was also commissioned by the Bavarian king; Goethe deemed it as an honor and duty to obey Ludwig’s wish and modelled for almost one month for Stieler, whom he came soon to appreciate also as a highly educated conversation partner. Original: Neue Pinakothek, Munich.

Giclée edition of the well-known Dietz print shop, with tactile and visual canvas texture, as an original painting on art canvas, stretched on a stretcher frame. Gilded solid wood framing. Limited to 990 exemplars. Format: 47 x 56 cm.

Giclée = derived from the French verb gicler meaning "to squirt, spray".

Giclée method is a digital printing process. It is a high-resolution, large-format printout on an inkjet printer with special different coloured or pigment-based inks (usually six to twelve). The colours are light-fast, that is, resistant to harmful UV light. They have a high richness of nuance, contrast and saturation.

The Giclée process is suitable for real art canvas, handmade and watercolor paper and for silk.

Art and culture in the period from 1815 to approx. 1860, between romanticism and realism in German-speaking countries. The epoch took its name from the weekly "Fliegende Blätter", where the poems by Swabian schoolteacher Gottlieb Biedermaier were regularly published between 1855 and 1857.

The painting of this period was determined by intimate, comfortable motifs. The masters of Biedermeier style were Carl Spitzweg, J. P. Hasenclever, G. F. Kersting among others. Ludwig Richter distinguished himself as an excellent illustrator.

After the German Centennial Exhibition 1906 in Berlin, the term "Biedermeier" established to describe fashion and simple, no-frills but high quality furniture.
