Loeber, Louise (follower?): Abstract Composition – SOLD


Out of stock


Artist: Louise Loeber (follower?), (1894 – 1983), bears initials,

Title and date: Abstract Composition, 1957

Size: 85 x 66.5 cm

Description:  a  large, bright oil on canvas in various colours which would look fabulous against a white or light coloured wall, it’s unframed but mounted on a stretcher. There’s some doubt whether it’s by Louise Loeber, the colours are right but the composition is unusual and we can’t find a smilar one. We’re playing it safe but you might be lucky – in which case it’s value would increase threefold!

More images can be provided on request.

Artist description:

Louise Loeber (also known as Lou King-Loeber, Lou King, Louise) was a painter draftsman, illustrator, engraver and glass painter. Between 1915 and 1918 she attended the Royal Academy in Amsterdam and from 1919, she came into contact with Cubism and De Stijl. In 1927 she travelled to the Bauhaus in Dessau and Berlin and joined the ‘Socialist Artists Circle’ (CCC). Her preference was for industrial and technological subjects and she used diagonal, horizontal and vertical lines which steadily shifted towards the abstract. Works by Lou Loeber can be found among others in the Singer Museum in Laren and the Rijksmuseum Twente.
