He began his studies at the Berlin academy with Carl Steffeck and Hermann Freese, after which he went to the Weimar art school. From 1884, Mosson exhibited in Berlin. In 1892, George Mosson was co-founder of the “Association of the XI” and in 1898 founding member of the Berlin Secession, which had joined in protest against the German academy art. After the split of the Secession in 1913, he went to the Freie Sezession together with Max Liebermann, Max Slevogt and others, and was a member of the Deutscher Künstlerbundes [1].

An ART DECO BRONZE STATUE of a FAN DANCER, attributed to BRUNO ZACH, c. 1925

Canadian Painting – Hilton Hassell (1910-1980) – Oil on Masonite – “Standing Nude”

A nude study by Canadian painter Hilton Hassell – titled “Standing Nude”

Painting without frame measures 24 inches high x 14 inches wide.

Original Hilton Hassell label on the reverse.

During Hassell’s early years, a Canadian art movement, formed by a loose fraternity of artists known as The Group of Seven, was beginning to emerge. Concentrating mainly on the Canadian landscape, they were dedicated to the belief that Canadian art must be truly inspired by Canadian nature itself. In 1929, Hassell studied under two of the original members of the group, JEH MacDonald and FH Johnson; as well as JW Beattie at the Ontario College of Art. They encouraged Hassell and, inspired by their work, Hassell went on to explore different styles, eventually blending the flow of forms which he ‘saw’ in nature. Later, AY Jackson and Hassell painted together on Georgian Bay. He became friends with another member of the group, AJ Casson.
