Sharing The News

Sharing The News c1904 by Italian Painter Eugen von Blaas (1843 – 1931); also known as Eugene de Blaas of the Academic Classicism Period. Though he often painted Venetian scenes; he also painted many portraits and religious works of art.

This genre painting portrays tow young women, of which one is washing clothes on a washing board over a large basin, while the other reads to her from a letter that she has received while leaning against a plaster covered brick wall that has a small window to her upper right with two flower pots filled with flowers resting on the windowsill in front of the window.

The setting seems to be in a courtyard and the women are either close friends or sisters, that are sharing an intimate moment and camaraderie between them; and they are dressed in traditional style Italian clothing from the late 19th or early 20th century.

Eugen von Blaas was born at Albano, near Rome, to a Tyrolean father and Italian mother. His father Karl, also a painter, was his teacher. His mother, Agnesina Auda, was a well-to-do Roman woman. The family moved to Venice when Karl became Professor at the Academy of Venice. He often painted scenes in Venice, but also portraits and religious paintings.

Among his works are La forma nuziale in sacrestia; La tombola in Campielo a Venezia; Una scena di burattini in un educanciatu; and La Ninetta. The art critic Luigi Chirtani, when the painting was displayed at the Mostra Nazionale di Venezia, described it as Beautiful, flattering, pretty, caressed, cleaned, polished, laundress in a painting by Mr. Blaas, the favorite portraitist of great Venetian aristocrats, dressed in gala satins, shining jewelry, hairstyles of the rich.

His colorful and rather theatrical period images of Venetian society, e.g. On the Balcony (1877; Private Collection), were quite different compared to delicate pastels and etchings of the courtyards, balcony and canals of modern Venice.

Eugene de Blaas’ paintings were exhibited at the Royal Academy, Fine Art Society, New Gallery and Arthur Tooth and Sons Gallery in London, and also at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool
