"Sissi"

EMPRESS ELISABETH OF AUSTRIA ,

(SKETCH) 1865

DUCKOMENTA original :

Acrylic on canvas, 1550 × 950 mm

 

 

The portrait artist, Franz Xaver Winterducker, liked to tell people about the time Empress Elisabeth stood on a chair for this portrait to make the most of her favorite frock. The painter then realised a number of variations on this theme for different, well-paying clients. He took the mystery of which portrait was the real one with him to the grave.

FRANZ JOSEPH I. (1830–1916),

Emperor of Austria

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil on canvas, 1600 × 1200 mm

"A Sunday Walk"

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil on wood, 300 × 400 mm

 

Not much is known about duck family life. This piece, by Carl Spitzmouse, provides a glimpse therein: a headmaster named Gottlieb Biedermouse seems to be tormenting his wife and children with contemplative walks in the scalding summer sun.

"The poor poet"

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil on wood, 300 × 400 mm

 

Carl Spitzmouse believed in the positive effects of poverty. This portrait incurred the wrath of duck writers. Apparently, in barely disguised hints, he had the gall to poke fun at the serious craft of writing, even at the notion of art in general.

"The Alchemist"

DUCKOMENTA original :

Oil and gouache on cardboard, 

270 × 300 mm

 

This humorous yet moving reaction to many a scientists’ most ambitious dream, creating artificial life in a beaker, is still appealing today. The most famous version of the painting shows the alchemist filling an empty glass with “hot air“. In this version, Carl Spitzmouse provides a more practical solution: hatching an egg in a test tube using hot air.
