Now the webmaster does not pretend to be an art expert. The images elsewhere on this site seem, however, to have a consistency of style as one might expect when featuring a single artist. But the following works, attributed also to Schenck, seem very different.
WORK # 1
The first work comes from the site of Auktionshaus Stuker of Bern, Switzerland. I really should say 'came' because the image would now seem to have been removed from their site. Is it the same Schenck?
WORK # 2
Below is another work attributed to Schenck. It came from the Galerie Robert Langer, of Saarbrücken, Germany.
WORK # 3
As I record the following item on this page, I remind the reader of my words at the top of this page and surely elsewhere throughout this site - that the webmaster is not an art expert. Just someone who has an interest in the artist & has accumulated for his own enjoyment, & hopefully for yours also, the 'Schenck' images that adorn these now many web pages.
The next item would appear to have been in an auction conducted by Rosehill Auction Gallery, of Englewood, New Jersey, U.S.A., on December 15, 2003. The detail is still available in Jul. 2006 as you can still see at this page - an oil on canvas, 36 x 22 inches in size, entiled 'Lost in the Storm', signed by the artist with a date of 1898. Artist stated to be 'August Frederic Schenck (1828 - 1901, French). I do not know what it achieved in a sale price at that auction. Its estimated sale price was U.S. $3,000 to $5,000.
The work is somewhat reminiscent of the work Lost, which however has been in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York since 1887 - as part of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Collection. That work is covered on page 06 of this site. The signature? As the artist's signature on a great many pages throughout this site will attest, the Schenck which is the subject of these pages seems not to have signed his work as this work was signed. The 'O' in the signature is a puzzle also.
More when I get more! Maybe YOU could provide new data or could provide a clue as to where new data about this work (or indeed any other Schenck work) might be found. I would truly welcome your input.
