Richard Strauss, c. 1920

Max Rimböck

Passau 1890 - 1956 Munich


Richard Strauss, c. 1920


Oil on canvas
90 x 75 cm


A second portrait in an informal setting is to be found in his house (Villa Strauss) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (ill. see exhib. cat. Richard Strauss - Autographen, Portraits, Bühnenbilder, Ausstellung zum 50. Todestag, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich 1999, p. 160, no. 172, color ill. p. 288).

Our hitherto unknown portrait from the artist's estate depicts Strauss with conductor's baton and tailcoat. During the 1920s Rimböck had a studio in Munich and was already a well known portrait painter. Both works were probably ordered by the Strauss family.
