‘Regina dei Fiori’ by Frédéric Soulacroix (1858-1933). The painting – which depicts an aristocratic Italian beauty sitting beside a porcelain vase full of peonies – is signed by the artist and presented in a superb quality hand-carved giltwood frame. In ancient Chinese culture the peony symbolizes love and beauty (as well as wealth and aristocracy). Soulacroix’s colour choice for both the flowers and her luxurious silk gown also references Oriental symbolism; the apricot traditionally representing female elegance. All our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. The son of the eminent French sculptor Charles Soulacroix (1825-1899), Frédéric Soulacroix was born in Rome in 1858. Aged 15 he began studying at the Accademia di Belle Arte in Florence and afterwards at the Scuola di Pittura in 1876. This was an auspicious time to be an artist working in Florence which, by the 1880s, had become the cultural capital of Italy. Like his contemporaries Vittorio Reggianini (1858-1938) and Arturo Ricci (1854-1919), Frédéric Soulacroix’s skilfully executed subject pictures of elegant 18th century beauties became very fashionable and were enthusiastically bought by the city’s wealthy art patrons. In the 1890s Soulacroix was commissioned by King Umberto of Italy to paint his wife Queen Margherita and by the 1920s his popularity across Europe and North America was such that he was named a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur and awarded the Ordre des Palmes Académiques by the French government. Dimensions: (framed) 93cm x 73cm (36½” x 28¾”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 62cm x 42cm (24½” x 16½”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private collection.

‘Charles I at Edgehill’ by Ernest Crofts RA (1847–1911). The painting – which depicts King Charles I in command of the Royalist army at the first battle of the English Civil War in 1642 – is signed by the artist and dated 1892 in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Academy. It was hung with the following quote from the poet Thomas Macaulay: “The King is come to marshal us, all in his armour drest.” The Battle of Edgehill saw forces loyal to Parliament -commanded by the Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux – delay Charles’ march on London, so preventing his chance of nipping the Great Rebellion in the bud. All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Ernest Crofts was one of the leading military painters of the late Victorian and Edwardian periods. He favoured historical subjects of the Napoleonic era and the English Civil War. Crofts had an outstanding knowledge of military costumes and built a large collection of original uniforms and militaria (many of which were exhibited at the Royal Military Exhibition held at Chelsea Hospital in 1890) enabling him to depict these in minute and authentic detail. Crofts was also known to have sketched on various battlefields, most notably the battle of Gravelotte in 1870, the largest battle of the Franco-Prussian War. Between 1867 and his death in 1911, Ernest Crofts exhibited 47 paintings at the Royal Academy in London, as well as at the Royal Society of British Artists. Crofts was made an Associate of the RA in 1878, a full Royal Academician in 1896 and Keeper and Trustee of the R.A. two years later. Dimensions: (framed) 47cm x 38cm (18½” x 15”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 41cm x 32cm (16” x 12½”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1892; exhibited at the Royal Academy.

‘Charles I on the Phoenix Tower’ by Robert Alexander Hillingford. The painting – which depicts the King on the fortified city walls of Chester having just witnessed the rout of his army at the Battle of Rowton Heath – is signed by the artist and presented in a fine quality gold metal leaf frame. Rowton Heath saw the comprehensive defeat of the last significant Royalist force in England and Charles I is said to have watched the battle with dignified stoicism from the Phoenix Tower alongside the Mayor of Chester Sir Francis Gamul. Today, the inscription upon the tower states: ‘King Charles stood on this tower, September 24th, 1645, and saw his army defeated on Rowton Moor.’ All of our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved, and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary.

‘Les Oies de Frère Philippe’ by Henri-Charles-Antoine Baron (1816-1885). This recently rediscovered painting, long considered lost, was exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1845 where the famous French poet and art critic Charles Baudelaire described it as representing “the Rococo of Romanticism”. The painting – which depicts the denouement of the story of ‘Friar Philip’s Geese’ by Jean de la Fontaine – is signed by the artist and presented in a fine quality bespoke gold metal leaf frame.
  • We would like to thank Andrew Counter, Professor of Modern French Literature at New College, Oxford University for his invaluable help in identifying the subject and history of the painting.
The Contes (or fables) of Jean de la Fontaine were very popular in eighteenth-century France, and one tale that proved especially popular with artists was the story of Friar Philip and his attempt to preserve the purity of his son and live free from temptation. After years living as hermits, Friar Philip finally allows the young man to experience the world outside their cave and glimpse the palace of the prince. Although passionately stirred by the wonders of its art and architecture, it’s only when he sees young women for the first time that he really flips! Desperate to know more, he asks his father the name of these strange and beautiful creatures… “O tell me, father; make my joy complete!” In a final vain attempt to shield the boy from carnal desires, Friar Philip answers… “A bird they call a goose.” “O beauteous bird, exclaimed the enraptured boy, Sing, sound thy voice, 'twill fill my soul with joy; To thee I'd anxiously be better known; O father, let me have one for my own!” Henri-Charles-Antoine Baron was a pupil of Louis-Alexandre Peron (1776-1855) and Jean François Gigoux (1806-1894) and first exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1837. For the next 40 years Baron would exhibit annually in Paris where he won medals of honour and numerous commissions from some of France’s most important patrons including the Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoleon III. Henri Baron as made a Chevalier of the Legion d’honneur in 1885. Dimensions: (framed) 100cm x 122cm (39½” x 48”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 84cm x 106cm (33” x 41¾”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Private UK collection. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf frame.

‘Our Party at the Oaks’ by William Holyoake R.B.A. (1834-1894). The painting – which depicts a group of young ladies at the famous English horse race - was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in 1867. It is presented in a fine quality, bespoke gold metal leaf frame. Originally one of a pendant (the other painting being ‘Our Party at the Derby’), ‘Our Party at the Oaks’ portrays three young society ladies on the hunt for husbands having their palms read by a Romany girl. Having just finished her reading the girl in the foreground has clearly been given much pause for thought. It is no co-incidence that Holyoake has chosen to place these competitive young ladies at The Oaks, the most prestigious and keenly contested race for fillies; sexually mature but as yet unbred females. All our paintings are sold in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. William Holyoake was an eminent Victorian painter of subject pictures. Between 1858 and 1888 exhibited at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, the Royal Society of Birmingham Artists, Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, and Manchester City Art Gallery. Holyoake was twice a Curator of the Royal Academy Schools. He was elected a full member of the Royal Society of British Artists in 1879 and named vice president by James Whistler in 1887. Dimensions: (framed) 69cm x 79cm (27” x 31”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 51cm x 61cm (20” x 24”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: Exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in 1867. Engraved by James Scott and published in March 1870 by Henry Graves & Company. Private UK collection. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf frame. All of the new frames we commission are especially made for us to order by one of the UK’s finest period frame makers. Condition: Very good. Newly professionally cleaned, restored, and re-varnished.

The following except is from ‘Johan Zoffany R.A. His life and works 1735-1810’ by Lady Victoria Manners and Dr. George Williamson: “The room in which the group is represented is a typical London drawing-room of the period, well-lit from a large window, having the tea equipage in full view and a harpsichord near at hand. Sir John Hopkins, the great-grandfather of the present owner, is the chief personage in it, and with him is his wife, his two sons, his three daughters and a friend, Dr. Boutflower. There is the customary round table, and as in the Willoughby de Broke picture and many others, the tea-things spread out upon it. One daughter is at the harpsichord, another turning over the music, the elder son stands near to the elegant mantelpiece, one sister by him and another near to her mother. It is just a family scene, quiet, simple and without pose, a charming pictorial record.” Provenance: By descent through the family to Colonel Bradney (great-grandson of Sir John Hopkins) of Talycoed Court, Monmouthshire; remnants of Royal Academy exhibition label verso; private collection of Lady Hopkins, 1920; private collection of Mrs V.I.

The painting – which depicts the future King Charles II and Queen Henrietta Maria of England assisting the ‘Le Grande Mademoiselle’ Anne Marie Louise d'Orléans at her dressing table – was exhibited at the Royal Academy 1848. Known throughout France as 'Le Grande Mademoiselle', the Duchess de Montpensier was one of the greatest heiresses in history and found herself at the centre of countless intrigues and scandals at the court of King Louis XIII.

‘An Awful Deed’ by Robert Alexander Hillingford (1828-1904). The painting – which depicts Oliver Cromwell contemplating Anthony van Dyck’s portrait of King Charles I – is signed by the artist and dated 1885. The subject is inspired by a scene in Sir Walter Scott’s 1826 novel ‘Woodstock’ in which Oliver Cromwell surveys Anthony van Dyck’s famous portrait of the King whom Cromwell had sent to his death during the English Civil War. In the presence his daughter (and a terrified Royalist), Cromwell looks upon the painting and remarks that though the killing of the king had been “A stern necessity” it was nevertheless “an awful deed”. Every painting we sell is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having just been professionally cleaned, conserved, and re-varnished. Clients should also note that fully insured, tracked, and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Robert Alexander Hillingford was a highly successful Victorian painter of historical and literary scenes who became most famous for his portrayals of the Napoleonic Wars.

‘La Fête au Château’ by Maurice Blum (1832-1909). The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1872. Maurice Blum studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Lyon from 1846 to 1850. He first exhibited at the Lyon Salon of 1858 before moving to Paris in 1864 to study with François-Édouard Picot (1786-1868) and Alfred Stevens (1823-1906). Like Picot and Stevens, Blum excelled in detailed figure painting and exhibited in Paris from 1864 to 1891. His success came despite the emergence of Impressionism and although his realist style fell out of fashion, unlike Stevens, Blum stayed true to Realism and was no less of an innovate for it. In 1875 Blum was the first painter to capture the performers at the newly opened Le Cirque Fernando in Montmartre years ahead of Renoir, Degas, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Dimensions: (framed) 81cm x 97cm (32” x 38”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 66cm x 82cm (26” x 32”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: With Haynes Fine Art of Broadway circa 1990.

Richard Morton Paye (1751-1820). This very large and exceptionally fine 18th century oil on canvas depicts a diverse crowd of Londoners at an oyster stand on a summer’s evening. The artist’s masterpiece, the painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London in 1788. The street festival of St. James’ Day commenced at midnight on August 5th and was known as London’s ‘Oyster Day’.
  • More about the long history and new restoration of this important Georgian painting can be seen in the accompanying film.
Richard Morton Paye was one of the most gifted and innovative painters of early English School. ‘St. James’ Day’ is a wonderful record of life in London during the reign of King George III and is sold with provenance of ownership dating back over 240 years. The Festival of St. James’ Day Greengrocers rise at dawn of sun – August the fifth – come haste away! To Billingsgate the thousands run, – ‘Tis Oyster Day! – ’tis Oyster Day! The above verse is taken from a poem popular during the reign of King George III which captures the excitement surrounding the arrival of the season’s first oysters at Billingsgate Market in London. August 5th marked the start of the oyster season in England and the celebrations – which included much drinking of alcohol as well the eating of oysters – began every year London at the stroke of midnight. About the Artist A contemporary (and rival) of Joshua Reynolds and Thomas Gainsborough, Richard Morton Paye was an innovative and skilful painter of scenes of everyday London life, often featuring children. Between 1773 and 1802 he exhibited 64 times at the Royal Academy, yet today, known works of his are few and far between. In ‘St. James’ Day’ Paye uses the opportunity to take out his frustration with patrons and the self-appointed connoisseurs of the London art world by lampooning both. In the background, to the left, a well-to-do gentleman is being accosted by a drunkard who humiliates him by pulling off his wig. New research into the painting has revealed the man to be the most powerful art collector of the age, John Julius Angerstein (1735-1823) of whom Richard Morton Paye was clearly not a fan. Meantime, to the lower right, a vicious dog is pictured stealing a chicken and written on its collar is the word “critick”. It is worth noticing that Paye was also capable of turning his acerbic wit upon himself. Seen on the far left, looking directly out at us, is the artist himself, distracted by public attention and clearly unaware that he is being robbed by a pickpocket. Dimensions: (framed) 127cm x 142cm (50” x 56”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 102cm x 119cm (40” x 43”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1788; purchased by William Clay, Esq. of Upper Gower Street.

One of a number of Florentine painters of superbly executed bourgeois interior scenes like Frederic Soulacroix (1858- 1933), Federico Andreotti (1847-1930) and Arturo Ricci (1854-1919), Reggianini is considered perhaps the finest painter of fashionable young ladies of the Ancien Régime and of the sumptuous fabrics they wore.

Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Sidney Richard Percy was the fifth – and most gifted – son of the English landscape painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), one of the most famous families in British art history. Just as his elder brothers Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) and Arthur Gilbert (1819-1895) had done, Sidney Williams changed his name in order to distinguish himself from the other members of the Williams family. Between 1842 and 1886 Percy exhibited at all the leading Victorian art venues showing 76 paintings at the Royal Academy, 48 at the British Institution, and 73 with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery.

It is testament to his talent that despite not have studied at a prestigious London academy or the RA schools and being apparently self-taught that George Cole would go on to become one of Victorian Britain’s most successful landscape painters. Cole’s early success as an animal painter found him his most important patron in Sir Robert Peel, whose important collection of Dutch Old Masters no doubt influenced Cole’s development and transformation into a painter of landscapes. George Cole began exhibiting in London in 1838 at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Society of British Artists, of which he would be elected as a member in 1850 and later Vice-President in 1867.

Unusually for such a popular and successful artist Henry Parker never exhibited his work in London but instead in the US and Canada, where his work continues to be popular to this day.

Edwin Henry Boddington (1836-1905). The painting - which depicts an extensive view of sunrise over a Welsh lakeland landscape - is signed by the artist and dated 1867, in which year it was exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists in London. The painting hangs in a fine quality gold metal leaf swept frame. As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned, restored and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edwin Henry Boddington first exhibited in London aged 17 in 1853. Like his father – the eminent landscape artist Henry John Boddington (1811-1865) – his favourite subjects were sunrise and sunset scenes of the River Thames and North Wales. Edwin Bonnington’s work of the 1850s and ‘60s displays all of the fine detail and skilful lighting effects of his father’s best work. In the first 15 years of his career Edwin Henry Boddington exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, the British Institution, and especially with the Royal Society of British Artists but after 1869 the quality of his work fell dramatically. A fondness for high living led him into bankruptcy and he was imprisoned for debt and then divorced by his wife. From 1870 Boddington’s work became routine and clearly painted to keep the wolf from the door. Although good prices are still achieved for his pictures after this date, in my opinion the only paintings by E.H. Boddington worth collecting are those executed before 1869. These examples can be very special, and every bit as accomplished as the work of the artist’s father and his uncle, Sidney Richard Percy. The large example from 1867 being offered here is a wonderful testament to what Boddington could achieve before his private affairs got the better of him. The painting comes from the private collection of the Matthews family of Great Witchingham Hall, one of the finest stately homes in Norfolk. Dimensions: (framed) 92cm x 142cm (36” x 56”) Dimensions: (canvas only) 76cm x 127cm (30” x 50”) Medium: Oil on canvas. Provenance: 1867, exhibited at the Royal Society of British Artists; private collection of Great Witchingham Hall, Norfolk. Presentation: Newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf frame.

All our paintings are offered in the finest condition they can be for their age having been newly professionally cleaned, conserved and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Edward Henry Holder was a popular 19th century topographical painter whose landscapes of the Home Counties, Lake District, Devon, Derbyshire, Wales, and North Yorkshire show a fondness for river scenes invariably executed with an eye for detail, good colour, and sound perspective. Between 1864 and 1917 Edward Henry Holder exhibited 33 paintings at the Royal Society of British Artists and numerous others at the Royal Academy and the British Institution. Late in his career Holder made an extended trip to Southern Africa to visit the site of his son’s death a few years earlier in the Boar War. Whilst there he produced some striking paintings of Table Mountain and Victoria Falls and, in a pleasing foot note to the artist’s long career, one of these was subsequently accepted by the Royal Academy. In the summer of 1917 – no less than 44 years after Holder’s last picture had hung there – ‘Victoria Falls on the Zambesi, Rhodesia' was shown at London’s most famous exhibition venue.

Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary. Thomas Creswick studied with Vincent Barber (1788–1838) at the family’s Birmingham Academy and like the Barbers and his contemporary Samuel Lines, Creswick’s work typifies the best of the mid-19th century generation of Birmingham School landscape painters. Having had numerous paintings accepted at the principal London exhibition venues, Creswick moved to the capital in 1827 and quickly earned a reputation as a fine painter of picturesque English and Welsh river landscapes. A subtle colourist and a sound draftsman, Creswick’s work garnered praise from critics such as John Ruskin and popularity with the late Georgian and Victorian art buying public. Between 1828 and 1870 Thomas Creswick exhibited 139 paintings at the Royal Academy, 80 at the British Institution, and 46 with the Royal Society of British Artists at the Suffolk Street Gallery.

In 1891 Paget began illustrating the Sherlock Holmes stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and as surely as the latter gave the great detective his unforgettable character it was the former who provided Holmes with his iconic profile, deerstalker cap, and Inverness cape. Sidney Paget’s international fame as an illustrator would overshadow his huge talent as a painter but his portraits and landscapes are clearly the work of an artist of enormous quality and are as fine as they are rare.

By the late 1850’s Chaplin was being inundated with commissions from the French aristocracy requesting portraits of their wives and daughters. Empress Eugénie, wife of Napoleon III, was also a big fan and appointed him an artist of the court. Her and her husband’s enthusiastic support would soon come in especially useful when, in 1859, the Chaplin’s portrait ‘Aurora’ was banned by the judges of the Salon for being “too erotically suggestive”. The disqualification order was subsequently overturned when Napoleon III himself sprung to Chaplin’s defence. During his lifetime Chaplin was awarded numerous medals at the Paris Salon and in 1865 he was declared a Chevalier and later Officer of la Légion d’Honneur (1881). Today, works by Charles Chaplin are held in the collections of the Louvre in Paris, the Hermitage in St Petersburg, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
