"Kloster Andechs 1970" Procession of pilgrims returning from Andechs.

Water color over pencil by Max Raffler (1902-1988). Titled upper left. Signed upper right.

Raffler's talent for painting was discovered only when he was already sixty years old. He was a farmer, who lived in Greifenberg on the Ammersee. He was coached by a friend (Toni Roth), had exhibitions in Munich and other cities in Bavaria and won the second prize among 3647 participants at an Amsterdam International Sunday Painter exhibit. Suddenly he was well known, and his art was very much sought. Calendars were produced and post cards. Books about Raffler and his work were published and several documentary movies were made about him. Individual exhibits followed in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hamburg, etc.

Raffler's art style is endearing. He painted what he knew and what he saw. Being a religious man, many of his watercolors show that. We lived only a few miles up the lake, and so I met Raffler in 1976. One of his sisters kept book on in-coming orders. I wanted to buy a watercolor of Andechs . Raffler painted in the kitchen, in a half-sitting, half lying position under a big window. He would not even look up when someone entered the kitchen. He just kept painting. Raffler was 74 when I first met him, and he was already quite sick and tired. His artwork at that time had suffered from his age and weariness. It was nearly impossible to get any of his artwork on the open market dated before the current date, as he sold any of his paintings right off the bat. His order books were filled, and he did not produce much. Being a "neighbor" his sister led me to the small stash she had framed on the wall and in a beat-up portfolio for special customers. I was allowed to buy three of Raffler's paintings from his good days, this being one of them. Raffler was never married. He was taken care of by his sisters. They told me that he had been painting all his life, and that they had trashed every single painting he had made before he was "discovered".

Condition: Flawless. Still in the frame the Raffler sisters had given it.

Image, visible under the narrow matting: 44,5 x 34,3 cm (ca. 17.5 x 13.5")

Overall including frame: 51,8 x 41,7 cm (ca. 20.4 x 16.4")

"Schloss Andechs in Ostfranken"

Anonymous hand-colored wood engraving. Ca. 1870

A curious piece, because the title is partially wrong. Andechs is NOT in Franconia but in Upper Bavaria. Mistakes like this one happened occasionally. Picture and title were often done by different people: Artist and helper. The title description was always hand-written and sometimes hard to read. It should be "Oberbayern"and not "Ostfranken".
