21/01/2021

This bust links two very prominent artists of the 20th century France: the sculptor Antoine Bourdelle and the architect Auguste Perret. Bourdellle created a bust of his friend Perret in 1921. Several examples are known to us (Salle Cortot, Théâtre des Champs Élysées, Musée d’Orsay, Musée du Prieuré à St. Germain-en-Laye, Hôtel de Ville au Havre). What makes this version particularly interesting is the at the time rare use of green ceramic. The artist was probably Jean Mayodon (1893-1967), a major avant-garde ceramist. He was a friend of Bourdelle and he adapted several sculptures by the artist.

The Gallery Trebosc + van Lelyveld was founded about twenty years ago in Amsterdam. The gallery offers a selection of unique, original and rare sculptures without any preference for choice of material or specific period. The discovery of an unusual object that goes beyond mere decorative interest is the raison d’être of Trebosc + van Lelyveld. The gallery, which is open by appointment, is housed in a 17th century townhouse where Baron d’Holbach held his salon in the 18th century.

Born into a family of modest means, François Bonvin was a talented draughtsman from an early age. His first formal instruction was at the École du dessin in Paris, studied for a brief period under the supervision of Horace Lecoq de Boisbaudran (1802-1897) and often went to the Academie Suisse where he drew after the model. Most directly influenced from sketching at the Louvre, especially by copying the works of the Flemish and Dutch genre painters, as well of those of Chardin (1699-1779), it can be said Bonvin was largely self-taught.

While earning his living, like his father, as a policeman, he first exhibited in the Salon in 1847, and has his first major success with the presentation of three paintings at the Salon of 1849. It was at this time that he made the acquaintance of Gustave Courbet and the great critic Jules-Francois Fleury-Husson (1820-1889), who wrote under the pseudonym, Champfleury. These three friends, Courbet, Champfleury and Bonvin, would become, in the words of Jay Clarke, the “cornerstones of the French Realist movement.” This movement rejected the idealism of Romanticism and concerned itself with the objective portrayal of daily life, its simple and quotidian aspects, especially in the lives of the poor and marginalized.

Towards the end of 1878 Bonvin, suffering great physical pain and confined to his house in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, embarked on a remarkable series of small-scale still-life paintings and drawings of kitchen utensils and other small household objects that were at hand. These pictures were painted at home, using objects found throughout the house, such as kettles, candlesticks, pipes, books, compote jars and stove grills. Most of his pictures from this time until his death in 1887 were of this type and scale.

The present painting, presented at Fine Arts Paris Online by W.M. Brady & Co, one of three small-scale still-lifes devoted to the subject of letter writing, shows a brass candlestick, fitted with a handle, with the stub of a candle that has just been snuffed, its ember still glowing and residual smoke wafting upwards. The candlestick rests on a small pile of correspondence, with a red stick of sealing wax and a seal to the left. Richly painted, this small picture demonstrates fully Bonvin’s marvelous mastery of color. The painting suggests a nocturnal attention to correspondence. Bonvin was a writer of verse, as well as an attentive correspondent.

Before being recognized by his contemporaries as the uncontested painter of volcanic phenomena, Pierre–Jacques Volaire (1729-1802) was trained in Toulon in the family workshop and then became a pupil and assistant of Joseph Vernet for the series of the Ports of France between 1755 and 1762. Like his master, he succumbed to the call of Italy and lived in Rome from 1763 to 1768. When he moved to Naples in 1768, the depictions of waterfalls and coastlines inspired by Vernet were replaced almost exclusively by views of the Volcano. As Cavaliere of the congregation of St. Luke, he enjoyed institutional recognition which was soon met with commercial success. In fact, the souvenir views that were popular among tourists on the Grand Tour, especially the English, and which Volaire created in large numbers, brought him a large fortune and artistic fame.

In this view, presented at Fine Arts Paris Online by Galerie Perrin, Volaire has adopted a vertical format. Rich impasto and thick brushstrokes full of paint with colors varying from yellow to brown have been used to describe the projecting flaming stones that illuminate the surrounds plunged into the darkness of night. Volaire has created several areas of powerfully contrasting light and dark, penetrating the thick clouds of smoke with a blue glow.

'Scène de patinage sur un canal' (A Wide Canal with many skaters) by Anthonie Verstralen (1594 - 1641) was offered at our last edition by Gallery Florence de Voldère. Verstralen was was born into an Antwerp family and he died in Amsterdam. He, along with Hendrick Avercamp, was influenced by a winter landscape of Pieter Bruegel the Elder’, the 'Bird Trap'. Punctuated by a few leafless trees, the radiant horizon has lowered to reveal a stormy, cloudy sky, a balance and counterpoint to the skaters whose shadows are cast on the frozen canal. The natural skating rink acts as a recreation and social area for the villagers, graceful silhouettes whose reduced scale serves to emphasise the vastness of nature.

Chantal Kiener promotes studies and sketches such as landscape oils on paper from the end of the 18th to the middle of the 19th century as well as drawings and watercolours of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Perfect for the festive season, the gallery offers this most decorative floral design for a large dish by Manufacture Vieillard (1845-1895). The Bordeaux earthenware factory created pieces marked by the taste of a fancy orient early on. The peony and cherry blossom branches in this design are clearly inspired by the taste of those days.

FINE ARTS PARIS exhibitor Chantal Kiener is based in Paris and her gallery is open by appointment. See https://finearts-paris.com for her contact details.

Looking back at Fine Arts Paris Online... Every detail counts in this wonderful oil on panel painting by Jean Beauduin (1851 - 1916). A graduate of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Beauduin exhibited at the Salon in Paris from 1888. The Belgian artist would spend much of his life in France where he built a reputation as an oil painter, draughtsman and illustrator of portraits, genre scenes and landscapes. ‘Le Miniaturiste’, depicts a gentleman at his desk in an interior filled with miniatures and sculptures. A must-have for collectors, presented at our latest edition by Rafael Valls Limited.

No need to feel blue on this Monday, there is still wonderful art to be enjoyed here, online as well as live.

FINE ARTS PARIS exhibitor Galerie Berès currently has a wonderful Simon Hantaï exhibition in their Paris premises which is also accessible in their own online viewing room. This handsome sized watercolour is part of the presentation.

Simon Hantaï, contemporary of Pierre Soulages and Gerhard Richter, became this French artist of Hungarian origin who folded, crumpled and deformed his canvases in order to paint them better.
Fascinated by Jackson Pollock's highly gestural painting, Hantaï abandoned figuration in the mid-1950s and echoed the great aesthetic revolution initiated by the master of Abstract Expressionism.
The folding, bending, creasing, pleating, deforming of the canvas became Simon Hantaï's iconic gesture, the founding act of his creative impetus.

It's the final hour of Fine Arts Paris Online! This captivating Portrait of André Wormser has been painted by Grand Prix de Rome winner Léon-François Comerre (1850-1916) in 1878.

André Wormser was a celebrated Romantic music composer. In 1872, he obtained the first price of piano at the Paris Conservatoire and he was laureate of Rome Prize in 1875. He stayed at the Vila Medici in the same period as Albert Besnard and Léon Comerre, who both painted his portrait; one now at Musée Carnavalet, and the present offered by Galerie Orsay Paris at Fine Arts Paris Online. https://finearts-paris.com/

The festive season has arrived and soon splendidly decorated tables take centre stage. Madrid based gallery De La Mano presents quite an eye-catcher which would crown any precious day.

The gilded table centrepiece with mirror is by French sculptor Pierre-Philippe Thomire (1751-1843), the most prominent bronzier or producer of ornamental patinated and gilt-bronze objects and furniture mounts of the First French Empire. His fashionable neoclassical and Empire style furnishing bronzes (bronzes d'ameublement) established the highest standard in refined finish in the craft that the French called that of the fondeur-ciseleur, "founder-finisher".
Marvel and examine this exceptional work of art in the online viewing room of FINE ARTS PARIS, accessible via https://www.finearts-paris.com, and get easily in touch with the gallery from there.

03/12/2020

This remarkable 18th century terracotta bust (detail) probably represents an artist’s portrait, with the collar open as required by the iconographic type in the 18th century. It is a characteristic and bright example of French sculpture of the Enlightenment which is characterized by a dynamic model and an elaborate treatment of the material. A striking illustration of the plastic preoccupations of the 18th century tending to technical perfection, this bust has an infinitely smooth and precise model.

The sculptor seems to express in this work a psychological portrait in which the immense latent force is reminiscent of the temperate neo-classical style of Philippe Laurent Roland (1746-1816). This same boldness can also be found in the striking and scrutinizing gaze in two portraits of artists by Roland: the terracotta bust of Joseph Benoit Suvée at the Louvre Museum, and the marble bust of Augustin Pajou preserved at the Jacquemart - André Museum in Chaalis. Roland has made a specialty of familiar busts with a layout comparable to the portrait of Suvée: open collar, natural smile. The portrait of the architect Jacques-Guillaume le Grand (plaster, Salon 1787) or that of Chaptal (Salon of 1802) are characterized by a human warmth, see a certain bonhomie, specific to Roland, even if the formula was developed before him by his master Pajou.

03/12/2020

During a life and career that lasted for almost the entire length of the 18th century, Jean-Etienne Liotard (1702-1789) produced a total of over 500 works; mainly pastels, which number around 300, but also some 30 paintings and around 150 chalk drawings, as well as miniatures, enamels and a handful of prints.

It has been suggested that this intimate portrait drawing, offered by Stephen Ongpin Fine Art depicts an as-yet unidentified woman from Geneva. The drawing can be dated to the period after 1757, when Liotard and his new wife settled in the Swiss city, where the artist spent the next 30 years. A wealthy and successful artist, he received numerous portrait commissions from prominent citizens of Geneva and visitors to the city. He also produced portraits of friends, family members and colleagues, as well as a number of still life compositions and self-portraits. On a stylistic basis, this drawing may perhaps be placed more precisely in the late 1770s, by comparison with such works of this date as a profile portrait drawing of the artist’s daughter Marie-Thérèse Liotard of c.1779, today in the Musée d'art et d'histoire de Genève.

The must-visit viewing room is into its last day: spare some time to go online and enjoy to see marvellous masterpieces such as this rare bronze, after the famous statue known as Farnese Hercules. It was produced with the method of sand-casting in 1819, the same year Carbonneaux received the commission for casting the equestrian portrait of Louis XIV by François-Joseph Bosio now in the place des Victoires. Hercules demonstrates the sculptor’s mastery of the technique, with crisp details and refined patina. The sculpture shows Hercules at rest, standing naked with his left foot forwards, leaning on a trunk draped with the lion's skin under his left arm, his left hand touching his club. The antique Farnese Hercules, one of the most famous ancient sculptures, dates from the 3rd century AD. It came into the collection of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese (1520-1589), the grandson of Pope Paul III, who was a great patron of the arts and assembled one of the biggest collections of ancient sculpture. The statue was displayed for generations in the Palazzo Farnese in Rome before being moved to Naples in 1787; it is now displayed in the Museo Archeologico Nazionale. Hercules (Greek name is Heracles) is one of the most important heroes in Greek mythology and represents the characteristics of masculinity, strength and courage. His two main attributes are the club and the lion’s skin, which he won at his first labour. He had to undertake 12 labours as a penance for slaying his own children in an act of madness.

Stuart Lochhead Sculpture has this magnificent bronze and other important artworks waiting for you in FINE ARTS PARIS' online viewing room which is accessible via https://www.finearts-paris.com until the end of today, 3 December 2020.
