Dora Stock, Portrait Painter of the Körner Circle in Dresden (1785-1815)
|Author: ||Rogols-Siegel, Linda|
This book examines Dora Stock, member of a group of lesser-known German women artists who brought about the transition from the idealized portrait to the realistic likeness. A prolific portraitist, she consistently labored to achieve her vision, reaching at the end of her life a degree of realism akin to the most outstanding portrait painters. This book assembles thirty-six portraits, numerous letters in English translation, and extensive biographical material.
