Carl Schweninger, Sr., Austrian (1818 - 1887)

Carl Schweninger, Sr. was considered a genre, Animal and Landscape painter from the Austrian school. He was born in Vienna on October 30,1818 and died October 13,1887.
 
Schweninger received his formal training at the Royal Academy in Vienna. His son, Karl, Jr. and his daughter, Rosa, were also accomplished genre painters.

“Not Willing” is a wonderful example of the phenomenon which popular nineteenth century paintings represented to the public. The depiction of everyday domestic scenes on as intimate – and often comical - level as possible. Even today the we are delighted by the emotion evoked between the subjects and our own emotions.
