Signed lower right and dated, “G. Wiedemann 1957”. 21-1/2″ x 29″ sight, 29-1/2″ x 37″ matted and framed in plain gilt frame. Guillermo Weidemann was born in Munich and studied under Hugo von Habermann. A member of the Berlin modern art community persecuted by Hitler’s regime for so-called “Degenerate Art,” Wiedemann fled to Columbia. There, his work began to show the influence of his tropical surroundings, and he won a national Columbian art award in 1946. He exhibited at the National Salon of Modern Art in Bogata in 1949, the Haus der Kunst in Munich in 1955 and 1958, and the Guggeheim Competition in 1958. He died in 1969 in Key Biscayne, Florida. Provenance: a Chattanooga, Tennessee collector, acquired from her mother, who lived in Key Biscayne, Florida in the 1960s. CONDITION: Scattered foxing, light toning.
