Default Found in an attic- The Return From Calvary, copy right 1904,

Found in an attic: Copy right 1904 by Louis Wolff & Company, London W. The work is signed by Robert Schmalz. The work on paper I believe is a print lightly painted and penned with gold leaf. The image is 23" x 17" and is highly detailed. Help please with identifying this work for a friend who discovered it. Thanks. Wanda

Default Have you sold/bought the print

I, too, have a print of this painting that I found in my grandmother's house this summer. It is in black & white and not signed. The framing is beautiful .... burled wood with a gold inset and olive/brown matte. All I have to further identify it as to age of the print is that it was printed in England ... I have not removed the paper backing.

Hi,
I also have this print. Sounds exactly like yours Wanda. The artist name if you google The Return From Calvary was done by Herbert Schmalz. The new ones look like they have colour. Have no idea what the antique ones are valued at but would like to find out. The one I have is very old and was given to me by a man of 65 now gone and he said as he was growing up it hung on the wall of his grandparents hotel in Kalamazoo, Michigan. It has some markings but I can't make them out.

Default Return From Calvary

I have a 1906 copyright print with six people climbing the stairway. It is lightly colorized to highlight some details in the picture. St. John's garment is a dark scarlet, and Mary's gown has a green waist ribbon tied about her. Other than that, the folage is splashed with green here and there. The frame border is knurled rose colored with hints of gold through it and a gold leaf inset border. The mat is tan in color, which appears to be its natural color. Also, at the bottom of the mat is a cut out relief framing the picture name followed by the description below " The Darkness which was on the earth is clearing away. One long, dark cloud is hanging over the city like a pall. The Virgin Mother, weighed down by fatigue and grief, knowing not whither she goes, is being led up some steps, toward
"his own" home. by St. John, and Mary Magdalene. Email me if you have any idea as to its rarity and value, any info would be appreciated. Landa_r@msn.com

Question Return from Calvary

I too have a print in B&W with a 1906 copyright from Louis Wolff & Co. London W. It is 18x24 with six people on the stairs (not just five) and in pristine condition. I would like to learn its value, and find a print by the same artist entitled "The solitude of Sorrow."

Default Herbert Smchaltz:

pinkeyelliner9@aol.com I have been looking for a copy of this painting.[/quote]

If I may inquire to your knowledge in regard to "The Return Of Calvary". I would be greatful. I too have this painting with six people on the stairs and 3 afar on crosses, on the bottom left corner of this painting it states just as;

Herbert Schmaltz 'signature'
Copyright 1904 by Louis Wolff & Co London N.W. 'appears hand written'

PAINTED BY HERBERT SCHMALTZ

I believe it's in the original frame. The glass is cracked and color has faded due to some water damage. I would be delighted if you could tell me if this has any value and is worth fixing to sell and/or for insured purposes. Would it be best to sell as is condition.

If of some value, I would be interested in selling.
hoping to hear from you soon, or if you like call 9783401640.
Thank you
Sincerly, Kris

Default The water boy, and hidden profile

In response to Justin, March 3, 2009.
I also have the litho that you are referring to, with the water boy holding a jug. In my litho (previously owned by my PA Dutch grandparents) if you look very closely right in the area of the jug, you will see a profile of a face, with eyes closed, and situated so that it is pointed toward Mary, Mother of Jesus. I had this litho for 8 years before I noticed it. To me, it is a symbol that even though Jesus was dead, His prescence was still with the group of mourners.

Hello Everyone,

They are in what I would say is 18th century attire. If anyone his intersted in this or know how much this is worth please email me at paulaettline@hotmail.com

The bottom right is marked but hard to make out the beginning is EME....I'll have to use a magnifying glass to figure out the rest.

I have the slightly colored lithograph of this painting. It was my grandmother's. Would possibly be willing to sell it and can provide a high resolution photo to show condition to any interested party. It was removed from the original frame, the matting has been yellowed with age but does not effect the image itself. One or two corners have crumbled a bit. If it were matted and reframed, it would look perfect.

I have a painting, Return from Calvary, It is on canvas, done in chalk, measures 29 by 43 and old. I had it looked at by an appraiser and he said that I had an orginal, but at that time we did not know the name of it, after months of research I found it. Now this painting is not signed, but I did read in this time period some artist did not sign their works. I have looked every where as to where the orginal of this painting is,as of to date no one knows. So I do believe that I do have the orginal. I do have pictures if you would like to see them, and yes it is for sale..And if anyone reads this and can come up with the orginal where it hangs, please let me know, and I will still have an orginal by someone that did a great painting of The Return From Calvery.

I have this painting, and it is for sale.. But let me tell you that I did take it to an appraiser, at the time I did, I did not know the name of it, nor did he, but he did say that I had an orginal painting.After months of research I found the painting and its name.. This painting is old, it is on canvas, done in chalk, measures 29 by43. I have since then searched everywhere for the orginal painting of this picture by Herbert Schmalz, but no one seems to know where it hangs. So I am lead to beleive that I just might have the orginal. This one is not signed, but I do know that in that time period . 1891 some artist did not sign their works of art. So if anyone reads this and they know where the original one is and its not mine, please let me know. I will still have a great painting, I do have pictures if your interested in seeing. This picture is in good condition.. you can email me at gscott10@ verizon.net Thanks..
