a daughter, a godchild, or a total stranger – WHAT DO YOU THINK? ; )

in fact, it's a detail of a much larger vertical painting showing the artist in a chair with his foster daughter lina sitting on his lap and another painter friend standing behind her. the painting hangs in the „hamburger gang“ of the kunsthalle, where the works of local artists are displayed. it’s not a famous painting but it’s one of my favorites. i find the depiction of the little girl very modern and authentic – toddler-like –, much different from the stiff-faced little adults that appear in many child portraits of the time. the year, by the way, is 1804!
(april 2011 – from my series „at the museum“)

friedrich carl gröger
selbstbildnis mit der pflegetochter lina gröger und dem maler heinrich jakob aldenrath (detail)
ca 1804
hamburger kunsthalle (hamburger gang)

post scriptum (dec. 2013): the "hamburger gang" of the kunsthalle is now used as a venue for changing exhibitions, so unfortunately "lina" can't be visited anymore!

Ich finde es wunderbar, Sabine, bin mir aber gar nicht sicher, ob das ein Ausschnitt aus einem Gemälde oder ein ganz normales Foto ist, ich tippe ja auf Gemälde, aber die Art, wie dieses Mädchen guckt ist faszinierend, die klaren Augen blicken wach in die Welt, von der Kleinen geht ein Leuchten aus, das durch die dunkle und schöne sw-Konvertierung unterstrichen wird, bin begeistert.
LG Ruth



Jörg Klüber, 28.12.2011 at 8:51h

I think a strange child!
Excellent treatment!
Jörg



Deryck, 28.12.2011 at 9:29h

I don't know, to me it almost looks like a little girl in a paining. Which ever way, I think it a is a stunning picture with a very beautiful little girl
Deryck



Mark Billiau., 28.12.2011 at 9:54h

It looks like a crop out of a painting to me, but this effect can also be achieved by editing as we all know.
Whoever it is, it's a pretty nice girl and a good portrait !

Mark



Helga Noll, 28.12.2011 at 10:13h

Ich tippe auch auf einen Ausschnitt eines, vielleicht so gar sehr bekannten, Gemäldes.
Ein wunderschönes Bild/Gemälde von dir hier spannend präsentiert, Sabine.
Erfahren wir die "Wahrheit" ?
Liebe Grüße Helga



TeresaM, 28.12.2011 at 10:21h

Comme une miniature .... fascinante vision de cet enfant aux yeux d'adulte... une présentation originale, Sabine.
Bonne journée & Amitiés :-)



Odette LEFEBVRE, 28.12.2011 at 10:24h

comme une peinture du 19è siecle en noir et blanc
fascinante et troublante vision
c'est tres beau
bonnes fêtes



BRYAN CRUTE, 28.12.2011 at 11:32h

A picture that could be years old or taken yesterday ?
Beautiful eye contact with this pretty girl. The editing adds a mysterious look to it

Regards
Bryan



Andrea Sagawe, 28.12.2011 at 11:34h

Ich gehe mal davon aus, daß es ein Ausschnitt aus einem Gemälde ist. Die Bearbeitung in s/w mit den starken Kontrasten gefällt mir sehr gut.

..this regard profound which directly concerns the future...this smile of the Mona Lisa in the making...these protective hands around...nevertheless send my in an uncertain past...in a present not deductible...in a future "deja vu"...is this a trap where we catch the beauty...this perpetual light of the world!

Marvelous, I love it and it goes to my favorites, I think it is you when you where a child


Accabadora, 28.12.2011 at 15:22h

ein ausschnitt aus einem gemälde aus der zeit Jane Austens, der viktorianischen zeit?
jedenfalls aus einer zeit, da die kinder nicht mehr als kleine erwachsene gemalt wurden.....und schöner & stimmungsvoller als ein foto , mit der leichten unschärfe eines gemäldes....das eintauchen des köpfchens und des ärmchens in den dunklen hintergrund , das hervorheben nur des kulleraugengesichtchens und des patschärmchens...samt den struktureffekten - besonders schön in sw

- ein gar liebenswürdiges rätsel, das du uns präsentierst, davon gerne mehr! :-)))))))

Accabadora, 28.12.2011 at 16:12h

wie peinlich!

nicht ordentlich gescrollt und die rätselauflösung erst beim 2.blick entdeckt ......immer zeitlich nicht schlecht geraten:-)

s. sabine krause, 28.12.2011 at 16:38h

thanks, everyone for guessing and giving your opinion! yes, it's a detail of a much larger painting! the year is 1804!! have added a link to the original painting now, and a short text which describes why i like it so much.


viola d, 28.12.2011 at 17:10h

He he, I agree with Inez: it's you, Sabine, generations before: who doesn't believe in reincarnation...?:)
Great idea.
Bw, Viola



Vera M. Shulga, 28.12.2011 at 17:17h

Very expressive portrait of a little girl.
In the portraits painted by artists is always part of the human soul. Interestingly, as was her destiny? ..



Franz Bernhardt, 28.12.2011 at 19:22h

Ein toller Ausschnitt, Sabine! Das Gesicht des Kindes ist mit großer Ausstrahlung gemalt. Es scheint wie auf einem schwarz-weiß Foto aus dem Fenster auf die verregnete Straße zu blicken, sicher von seinem nach Tabak riechenden Großvater behütet, wo es dich gerade entdeckt. Und dir sein wohlwollendes und sehr interessiertes Antlitz zuneigt.

Grüße
Franz



Sepideh Q., 28.12.2011 at 19:28h

This seems magical!
The girl sitting there, just keeps shining in that darkness.
The edition is also great. Thank you dear Sabine for sharing this beautiful shot of a masterpiece. I like it too.
And thanks for the link of complete version of the painting!
Best wishes from Persia,
Sepideh

A very lifelike looking face with big eyes full of expression of wonder - I can appreciate why you love looking at her painting, Sabine ... this detail is well captured and cropped and very effective in black and white.
Best wishes for the coming News Year, dear friend !!!

AN LINA

Liebchen, kommen diese Lieder
Jemals wieder Dir zur Hand,
Sitze beim Klaviere nieder,
Wo der Freund sonst bei Dir stand.

Lass die Saiten rasch erklingen
Und dann sieh ins Buch hinein;
Nur nicht lesen! Immer singen!
Und ein jedes Blatt ist Dein.

Ach, wie traurig sieht in Lettern,
Schwarz auf weiß, das Lied mich an,
Das aus Deinem Mund vergöttern,
Das ein Herz zerreißen kann!

Beau portrait bien extrait de l'oeuvre originale :belle photo .Simone


Sally Dunn, 2.01.2012 at 10:57h

Yes, it is a very relaxed pose and style of dress for that era and that makes the child seem informal and more up to date. I like the expression, innocent with a hint of personality with the wide eyes.
Hugs
Sally



Ernst Seifert, 2.01.2012 at 12:50h

Ein Ausschnitt eines sicher sehr interessanten Gemäldes also. Aber ein entscheidender Teil. Die großen runden Kulleraugen des Mädchens faszinieren den Betrachter und die Hand des Großvaters bildet den Ausgleich im Bild mit ihrem "Gewicht" auf der linken Seite.

thank you so much again, fingal (fionnghall), for bravely proposing this shot for the gallery! and thanks, everyone else, for taking the time to vote!


Jim McKinniss, 21.05.2012 at 23:15h

Too bad about the gallery vote Sabine. This is a marvelous reinterpretation of an existing work of art.

There are still people who feel that a photo like this is really a copy of another artist's work. Many of the great photographers, including Paul Strand, Brett Weston, Diane Arbus to name just three, have chosen to reinterpret the art of others with their photos and put their name on the photo thus stating that it is their art.

I agree with them.

fotopeter45, 19.08.2012 at 11:28h


ass a big fan of old dutch painters I like this
because of the great use of light.

I also like the impressionist because their use of light and color.

Anna Kowalski, 21.08.2012 at 23:07h

Captivating. Maybe because of the direct eye contact... maybe because of the expression on her face....maybe because of the aura of mystery... Wish, I could find out more about this little girl from another time and another place...


xwang, 30.08.2012 at 12:39h


Hi Sabine,
How are you? Hope that you are fine.. I can't remember my passwords, so I haven't been FOTO for a while...
This is a Superbly captured iamge, Sabine.
Gallery paintings are not easy to take, mainly the reflection. I have never really put any painting photo on, because of the lack of clarity and the reflection. But you did excellently on this image. Beautiful painting, nice crop, good work. I do like it.
Take care, Sabine. My best wishes to you.
