Vintage Dachshund Art: Adolf Eberle
Video by youtuber Leonid LL
Who? Adolf Eberle was born in Munich, Germany, on 11 January 1843. He died in the same city on 24 January 1914.
A genre painter and the son of the animal painter Robert Eberle, Adolf was schooled in Bavaria. A pupil of the Munich Academy and from 1856 of Piloty, his first painting was shown in 1861.
Eberle’s natural abilities at figure interaction and accuracy keep the viewer marvelling and those who already own his work from selling. Adolf exhibited at Vienna, Dresden and Munich and received a medal at Vienna. Source.
His paintings, which include many dogs, mostly Dachshunds, sell for tens of thousands of dollars today. Thanks to an Anonymous Dachshundist for sending in the video!
