Eugene von Blaas
(1843 - 1932)
Eugene von Blaas was active/lived in Italy, Austria. Eugene von Blaas is known for Peasant figure and genre painting-fisher folk.
An Italian painter born to Austrian parents, Eugene von Blaas, also
known as Eugene de Blaas, became a late 19th, early 20th century figure
and genre painter in the style of Academic Classicism. He was
most associated with Venetian subjects especially voluptuous female
water carriers. Many of his scenes, painted either in oil or
watercolor, suggest male and female flirtation between fisher folk as
they go about their daily business. The artist often used his
wife, Paola Prina, as a model.
He was born in Albino, near Rome and moved to Venice as a young man
with his family because his father, Karl von Blaas (1815-1894), a
history and fresco painter, became Professor at the Art Academy.
