von Hoffmann


For some reason, nobody seems to have a title for this impressive painting by 
Ludwig von Hoffmann.  And for some reason, I haven't posted it until now, despite it being 
a favorite because of the muscles and the varying ages of the subjects.

  1. This seems to have a Van Gogh style to it. From a distance I almost thought it was one of his.

  2. A Google image search led to a this site
    https://www.meisterdrucke.uk/fine-art-prints/Ludwig-von-Hofmann/687649/defense.html
    that says it is called Abwehr (Defense), 1910.

    1. Hmm, my Google image search did not return that website--I feel cheated! Thanks for sharing!

    2. The Google image search led to it, but it didn't return it directly. The image search returned several tumblr pages. One of them led to a Flickr page that gave the painting's name as Abwehr but no other info. Then a subsequent Google search for "Ludwig von Hoffman Abwehr" returned the Meisterdrucke site.
