Peasant with Fur Coat Beside Fire


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Heicke was an animal and landscape painter and lithographer, born in Vienna in 1811. He studied at the art academy in that city from 1824 to 1831. After 1842 he undertook numerous sketching tours, traveling to Italy, Hungary and the Middle East. This watercolor is likely based on a scene he witnessed on one of these journeys. The man holds an Afghan coat, which might suggest an eastern location.
Provenance William T. Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1894, by inheritance; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
