Lot 38


Jacob Krämer, 
Ukrainian/British 1892-1962 - 

Harbour scene (with 'A Portrait of a Gentleman' on the reverse); 

oil on canvas laid down on board, signed twice lower right 'Krämer,', 50 x 60.5 cm (ARR) 

Krämer was part of the vital group of Jewish and émigré artists working in London in the early decades of the 20th century, that included figures such as David Bomberg, Mark Gertler and Bernard Meninsky, and was involved with the Vorticist artists, led by Wyndham Lewis. 

This interesting work demonstrates two different sides of Kramer's work; the quieter harbour scene demonstrating his post-impressionist use of flattened colour and careful approach to form, and then the more austere portrait on the reverse of the board. This portrait has the monumentality and graphic approach more typical of central European art, such as Käthe Kollwitz and Christian Schad.
