BIOGRAPHY

ZILLER Leopold
French painter (19th-20th century)
Landscapes, seascapes
Architectural views : Venice, Istambul, Bosphorus
Leopold Ziller was an accomplished 19th century artist known as follower of Felix Ziem. He specialized in Venetian and Bosphorus scenes. Although a great deal of his work was done towards the end of the 19th century, he continued working up until about 1930 and was therefore a real bridge builder between the two centuries. Ziller lived and painted most of his life in France and Italy. His style is distinguished and talented and although he did not exhibit at the major salons, his work is considered to be extremely competent and searching by collectors in the whole word.
