Frantisek Zdenek Eberl was a Czech-born painter who worked mainly in Paris, France.
He enjoyed several single artist exhibits.The legendary art dealer Berthe Weill took an interest and included him in numerous exhibits in her Parisian gallery, and Eberl became a member of the Salon des Artistes Independents.
Although well known for his sensual nudes, it was first and foremost his authentic depiction of Monmartre’s gritty nightlife atmosphere with its prostitutes, gamblers, drug addicts and alcoholics that promoted Eberl´s fame.
Eberl never compromised his subjects but rather he expressed their full humanity in his paintings. This distinguishes him among the painters of his time.
Eberl\'s works were regularly on display at the gallery of Berthe Weill as well as the gallery Bernheim Jeune and Devambez.
This is the last item in the auction.
