‘Cleopatra’s Palace at Antirhodos’ by Alois Hans Schram (1864-1919).

The painting is signed by the artist and validated with the official estate stamp. It is presented in a giltwood Egyptian revival frame.

Born in Vienna, Alois Hans Schram was a painter of historical subjects, landscapes, and portraits. Schram studied at the Art Academy in Vienna under Hans Makart and throughout the 1880s travelled extensively across the Mediterranean working in France, England, Spain, Sicily, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Palestine, and Syria. In 1889 he was awarded a two-year scholarship to study in Rome. Schram’s paintings from this period are grand Academic scenes of neoclassical subjects but around the turn of the century his style became more Impressionistic and his subjects lighter and more romantic influenced by the Vienna Secession and Art Nouveau.

Schram received numerous gold and silver State medals and was commissioned to paint large friezes in several important state buildings including the Viennese Parliament. Today, works by Schram can be found in museums and private collections around the world.
