Edmund Blume - Portrait of a Gentleman, 1868

Edmund Blume, German painter, was born in Halberstadt in 1844 and died in Munich in 1910. He studied at the Prussian Academy of Arts in Berlin under Gustav Richter, and later in Munich. He worked between Vienna and Berlin, but in 1833 finally decided to establish his residence in Munich until his death. His work consists mainly of portraits and genre scenes. Many of his works have sold at auction, among others, at Christie's and Sotheby's. His painting "The Confession" was sold in 2012 at John Moran Auctioneers in California, part of their "European Modern Fine Arts & Auction", and most recently, "Young Mother with Child", sold in Louisiana in 2014. 

This portrait represents a distinguished bearded gentleman dressed in a black double-breasted coat with large black buttons, a high-necked white shirt with gold cuff link on the right sleeve, and a black bow tie. On his left lapel there is a rectangular dark blue and white insignia resembling a tie pin, with thin white and red stripes. The subject also wears a gold band on his right ring finger. A very realist rendering with remarkable expression and lighting.
