Dr. Rainer Schuster M.A.

Pre-20th-Century Paintings, Miniatures, Prints and Works on Paper, Books


Rainer Schuster was able to fulfil a very personal childhood dream by studying art history. Already familiar with the various aspects of art in the south of Germany from his youth, he was able to deepen his knowledge – especially of 17th and 18th century painting – under Prof. Hermann Bauer. Schuster concluded his study of art history in Munich and Vienna with a dissertation on the Bavarian copperplate engraver Michael Wening. Immediately after gaining his doctorate he began a three-year internship at the Bavarian Administration of State-owned Palaces, Gardens and Lakes.

 

In 1998, he moved to NEUMEISTER, initially as an expert on prints, works on paper and books and, from 2003 onwards, for Old Masters and 19th and early 20th-century artists. Since January 2011 Rainer Schuster has headed our core segment FINE ART and is available for valuations of prints, works on paper and paintings from the 15th to the early 20th century. Thanks to his extensive art-historical knowledge, numerous objects, originally consigned as works of unknown masters, have already been accurately attributed to specific artists, as in the case of an important drawing by Friedrich Sustris of a design for St. Michael’s Church in Munich. The highly acclaimed catalogue for our special auction of 21 works by Adolph von Menzel in 2012, compiled by Rainer Schuster, is not only further evidence of his expert knowledge but also of his ability to convey his own enthusiasm for art to our customers.
