DESCRIPTION:  Born in San Francisco, Edward Cucuel was an Impressionist painter of genre and figures in landscapes, often using his family members for models rather than professionals. A specialty was using a vibrant palette and rich impasto to depict women in sun-dappled landscape settings.

At the age of fourteen, he enrolled at the School of Design in San Francisco, and three years later, in 1892, he went to Paris and studied at the Academie Julian. In 1893, he enrolled at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts as a student of Jean-Leon Gerome. In 1896, he returned to the United States and worked as an illustrator on the San Francisco "Call" and "Examiner" newspapers and earned enough money to return to Germany and Paris, which he did in the next few years.

In 1907, having lived much time in Germany, he moved his studio from Berlin to Munich and was much influenced there by the German Expressionists. He began working with Leo Putz and developed his own Impressionist style.

He married Clara Lotte von Marcard in 1913, and they spent their summers in a villa on Lake Amersee in Holzhausen near Munich. In 1928, he moved to New York, but traveled extensively, and in 1939, he settled permanently in California. He died in Pasadena in 1954.

Examined at Baumgartner Fine Art Restoration 1006 South Michigan Avenue Suite 706 Chicago, IL 60605 on August 12, 2004

The painting was executed on a piece of 1/4” thick pressed cardboard. Though the cardboard is stable it is fragile and the edges have begun to disintegrate with handling and general exposure. The back of the painting appears to have been slightly damaged in the upper left corner, yet is not a threat to the structural integrity of the painting or the paint film.

The painting was painted in a loose manner with medium to rather heavy impasto. In addition to a light film of surface grime, the painting’s varnish has discolored slightly. On the lower left corner in dark blue that artist signed “Cucuel”. Microscopic examination of the signature reveals it to be authentic to the painting. Ultraviolet examination reveals no retouching. Overall the film is stable with no cracking or paint loss.

On the back of the painting, attached to the cardboard is a label that reads: “ Edward Cucuel. Munchen Kuegell (?) 105 ‘Herbsterinnerung’” (Fall Memories).

The painting is in excellent condition and warrants only minor work in a light cleaning and stabilization of the cardboard edges.
