Three pastels of Carl Schmitt and one oil painting are being offered for sale by the owner, a descendant of a friend of the Schmitts from the 1930s. If you are interested in any of these works, please contact the Foundation.
Two of the pastels depict the countryside of Tagliacozzo, a town in the Abruzzo region east of Rome where Schmitt convalesced from tuberculosis in the summer of 1939. The artist inscribed the pastels to his friends John and Agnes Cavanagh.
An earlier pastel of a tree in Silvermine is also inscribed to the Cavanaghs.
A mature still life by Carl Schmitt is rarely seen on the market. (The painting in the background is another Schmitt still life.)
This painting is a companion piece to two others presently in private collections.
