Oskar Herrfurth's Paintings

It looks Oskar Herrfurth was not particularly picky when media for the next project had to be chosen. He worked in oils, watercolors, gouache, mixed media, charcoal pencil, ... He was a skillful and crafty worker whose execution was timely, and somehow predictable. Perfect for steady stream of money but not best option for collectors who are looking at art as an investment. Herrfurth's work is not often seen in auctions and typical prices are around a few hundred dollars. It's even possible you'll have to pay for a reproduction more than for the original.

However we'll present his works as they pop up on web pages, together with basic info on each one and an interesting tidbit or two where possible. If you find anything which is not already included here, please send us a note with a link. Thank you in advance.
