Two paintings by the Luxembourgish painter Corneille Lentz discovered during renovation project

At the recent exhibition “Plakeg!” at Villa Vauban, a newly-found painting by the Luxembourgish painter Corneille Lentz was displayed. The painting was discovered in the estate of Mrs Antoinette Schleich-Lentz, the daughter of the painter and the founder of Fondation Schleich-Lentz. It was found in the attic of her house in poor condition and was donated to the museum to be restored. 

 

The painting was found when the house was being cleaned out before being renovated and turned into student housing for the University of Luxembourg. Mrs Antoinette Schleich-Lentz created the Fondation Schleich-Lentz in 2015 under the aegis of Fondation de Luxembourg. It was created as a dormant foundation which only became active after she passed away in 2016.  

 

Mrs Antoinette Schleich-Lentz came from a very artistic family and her home was full of art, all of which was donated when she died. Most of the art was either created by herself or by her father, Corneille Lentz. Two of the paintings that were discovered in the house received particular attention. Lentz’s painting Adam and Evewas displayed in Villa Vauban at the “Plakeg!” exhibitionand his painting La Kermesse “Schueberfouer” à Luxembourg, illustrating Luxembourg’s beloved Schueberfouer approximately 100 years ago, has been put on display in the Luxembourg City Museum.
