STUCK, Franz von
(b. 1863, Tettenweis, d. 1928, Tetschen)

Fighting for a Woman

Oil on panel, 90 x 117 cm
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg

After the turn of the century, Stuck's paintings showed a much more controlled application of paint and greater symmetry in composition. Strong elements of eroticism are also found in his later works, for example, in various versions of the theme Fighting for a Woman.
