Belle Femme en Déshabillé - French 19th Century Belle Epoque Oil Painting Portrait of Paris Society Girl
££39950

This is a large fine 19th century oil painting portrait of a young society beauty captured in semi-undress by the eminent French Academic painter Charles Joshua Chaplin (1825-1891). ‘Belle Femme en Déshabillé’ is signed by the artist and sold in a superb quality newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf neoclassical frame. The painting is in my opinion one of the artist’s most striking three-quarter length portraits, and certainly captures one of his most attractive sitters.

 

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

Chaplin’s celebrated portraits of young women are reminiscent of the 18th century romanticism of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) and François Boucher (1703–1770) but his subjects are nevertheless recognisable as more modern Belle Epoque women. The critical and commercial success of Chaplin’s beautifully lit portraits of sensual young women captured en déshabillé established him as one of the foremost French academic painters of the period.

 

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.

Madeleine - French 19th Century Portrait Oil Painting of Young Society Beauty
£49950

This is a very large fine Victorian oil painting depicting a young society beauty at the turn of the 19th century by the eminent French Royal Academy and Paris Salon painter Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant (1845-1902). ‘Madeleine’ is signed by the artist, and also titled and dated 1901. This important full-length portrait by one of the world’s foremost society painters of the period hangs in a newly commissioned bespoke gold metal leaf neoclassical frame.

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age having been newly professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

In the final quarter of the 19th century Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant was one of the world’s leading painters of Orientalist scenes and society portraits – the favourite artist of the English aristocracy – whose patrons included Queen Victoria and the Pope. North American tycoons queued-up with patriarchs of the English nobility to commission portraits of their wives and daughters. The full-length portrait being sold here being a superb example.

Today, the rich and famous dream of being photographed by Mario Testino or Annie Leibovitz, back in 1900 they wanted to be painted by Benjamin-Constant, and his society portraits brilliantly convey the individual personality of the sitter.

Jean-Joseph Benjamin-Constant was awarded a gold medal at the Paris Salon in 1896, made a commander of the Legion d’Honneur, and with Jean-Léon Gérôme foundered the Société des Peintres Orientalistes Français. Paintings by Benjamin-Constant are held in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, and the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg.

Harry Roseland was one of the most prominent American subject picture painters of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is most famous today for his poignant and compassionate scenes depicting the working lives of poor African-Americans but his early portraits of young society beauties are much rarer and no less impressive.

Today, Roseland’s most famous admirer is perhaps Oprah Winfrey whose favorite painting from her own personal collection is Roseland’s 1904 work ‘To the Highest Bidder’.

As one of his most popular paintings, Chaplin painted several versions of this same portrait but this is the finest example I have come across.

Arthur Hill was a renowned painter of ancient Greek, Egyptian, and Roman scenes typically depicting poor yet always alluring young women. Like John William Godward, Ernest Normand, and Thomas Ralph Spence, Hill was greatly influenced by the great Olympian masters of British neo-classical painting Lord Leighton and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, but unlike them he chose to portray young working women rather than the idle rich.

Arthur Hill exhibited 26 paintings at the Royal Academy (‘Oranges’ being one of these), and 28 at the Suffolk Street Gallery of the Royal Society of British Artists of which organisation he was a member.

Among Feyen’s admirers was Vincent van Gogh who described him as “one of the few painters who pictures intimate modern life as it really is and does not turn it into fashion plates.”

When the ‘Mona Lisa’ was stolen from the Louvre in 1913 it was Feyen’s copy of La Giaconda that temporarily replaced it on the museum wall until Leonardo’s original was recovered. Jacques-Eugène Feyen was made a Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur in 1881.

£14950

This is a fine mid-19th century oil on canvas depicting a mother and daughter on a summer afternoon gathering gorse (or furze as it is also known) for kindling with a donkey resting nearby by the eminent British landscape painter Sidney Richard Percy (1822-1886). ‘Furze Cutters’ is signed by the artist and dated 1851.

Sidney Richard Percy was the fifth son of the celebrated English landscape painter Edward Williams (1781-1855), one of the most famous families in British art history. In my opinion Sidney Richard Percy was its most gifted painter. Just as his 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.

Living and working in the city of Leeds in the late 19th century it was perhaps inevitable that Wilfred Jenkins would become heavily influenced by that famous painter of Victorian nocturnes John Atkinson Grimshaw, who also lived in the city.

During the 1880’s and 90’s Turner’s talents as a painter earned him a nationwide reputation as ‘Derbyshire’s John Constable’, and he became teacher to a number of other notable painters of the time including Louis Bosworth Hurt, David Bates, David Payne, and his own son William Lakin Turner. I have seen a great many pictures by George Turner and I can say without doubt that this is the finest example of his work that I have ever seen.

Katherine & Petruchio - 19th Century Oil Painting of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew

A very large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting ‘Katherine and Petruchio’ in a scene from Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ by the eminent Royal Academician Charles Robert Leslie RA (1774-1859).

“There is no man now living who seems to me to come close at all near Mr Leslie, his work being in places equal to Hogarth for decision, and here and there a little lighter and more graceful”.
John Ruskin

Charles Robert Leslie was one of the most famous and successful British artists of the 19th century. The close friend and biographer of John Constable, C.R. Leslie exhibited 76 paintings at Royal Academy between 1813 and 1858, and was elected at full Royal Academician in 1826.

For many years the painting was erroneously thought to depict Queen Elizabeth I receiving news of her assent to the throne of England, but now with the kind assistance of Professor Rosalind King and Dr Patrick Gray we have correctly identified it’s actual subject; Act II, scene I of Shakespeare’s ‘The Taming of the Shrew’ (a favourite of C.R. Leslie), and more precisely the 1754 reworking of the play by the famous actor/manager David Garrick. Throughout Georgian and Victorian Britain it was Garrick’s version that was most often performed, and the one that the artist would most likely have seen.

“The painting represents Act II of David Garrick’s ‘Catharine and Petruchio’ and offers a genuine insight into 18/19th century interpretations of Shakespeare’s play.”
Professor Rosalind King, Oxford University

We would like to thank Professor Rosalind King and Dr Patrick Gray for their invaluable expertise in the identification of the subject in this painting. Professor King is Professor Emeritus at the University of Southampton, the Visiting Plumer Fellow at St Anne’s, University of Oxford, and has served on the academic committee of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London and on the Board of Directors of the English Shakespeare Company.
Dr Gray studied at Oxford, Yale, and the Sorbonne before joining Durham University as Associate Professor of English Studies.

On 18th March 1554 Princess Elizabeth -daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn – was incarcerated in the Tower of London by her sister, and rival for the English throne, Mary Tudor. The Princess’ worst fears were soon realised when a warrant for her execution was delivered to the Lieutenant of the Tower, Sir John Brydges (shown in the painting standing, in armour, to the right). It was signed by every member of Mary’s Privy Council but upon examination Sir John saw that the signature of the Queen herself was absent and refused to act upon the death warrant. Although a staunch Catholic and servant of the Queen, Sir John Brydges was also a man of principle and duty and his intervention saved the life of the future Queen Elizabeth I.

The son of the Scottish landscape painter Joseph Adam, Joseph Denovan Adam would go on to eclipse the achievements of his father becoming late Victorian Britain’s most celebrated painter of Highland cattle. Where others painters of the Highlands such as Horatio McCulloch were content to dot their landscapes with a few cattle Adam gave them pride of place.

Adam was a stickler for painting from nature, and had a large studio – part wooden hut, part glass conservatory – built on his house to serve as an all-weather observation base. He called it his “cattle atelier”, and here he established a school of animal painting where he kept many live animals for his students to draw.
