American Beauty - Belle Epoque Oil Painting Portrait of Redheaded Society Girl
£5950

This is a fine Belle Epoque oil painting portrait of a young redheaded beauty strikingly lit from behind by the eminent American painter Harry Herman Roseland (1867-1950). ‘American Beauty’ is signed by the artist, and hangs in a superb quality, newly commissioned gold metal leaf frame.

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

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’.

L'Extase - 19th Century French Belle Epoque Portrait Oil Painting
£19950

This is a large fine 19th century oil painting portrait of a young society beauty depicted en déshabillé by the eminent French Academic painter Charles Joshua Chaplin (1825-1891). ‘L’Extase’ is inscribed by the artist verso and sold in a superb quality, newly commissioned, bespoke gold metal leaf neoclassical frame. 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.

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in excellent condition, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished. Clients should also note that tracked and signed for international shipping is complimentary.

Chaplin’s celebrated portraits of young Belle Epoque beauties are reminiscent of the 18th century romanticism of Thomas Gainsborough (1727-1788) and François Boucher (1703–1770) and 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.

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.

In 1837 Jacques-Eugène Feyen began studying under Paul Delaroche at the École des Beaux-Arts. Between 1841 and 1882 he exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon and was awarded medals in 1866 and 1880. 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.

Having studied in London and Paris, Philip Calderon began exhibiting historical and literary pictures and portraiture at the Royal Academy in 1853. A friend and contemporary of William Holman Hunt (1827-1910), Dante Gabriel Rosetti (1828-1882) and John Everett Millais (1829-1896) his style was initially Pre Raphaelite yet in subject was initially closer to the artists of The Clique such as William Powell Frith (1819-1909) and Henry Nelson O’Neil (1817-880) and later to the classical themes of the Olympians Lord Leighton (1830-1896) and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema (1836-1912).

 

Calderon was elected an ARA in 1864 and a full Academician three years later, aged just 34. In the same year he became the first British artist to be awarded a gold medal at the Paris Exhibition. Perhaps above all else, Calderon was a superb painter of female beauty. In 1887 the artist received one of the Royal Academy’s highest honours when he was appointed Keeper of the RA.

Of Scottish decent, John Lewis Brown was born in Bordeaux but moved to Paris aged 12 where he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts with Camille Roqueplan (1802-1855) and at the École Gratuite de Dessin under Jean-Hillaire Belloc (1786-1866). Most famous as an equine painter, Brown’s early work reflects his neoclassical training, and also the influence of the great English romantic painter Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-1828) as well as Ernest Meissonier (1815-1891). He exhibited at the Paris Salon from 1847.

 

With the immergence of Impressionism in the 1880s his style became freer. A very gregarious man, Brown was a close friend of Edgar Degas, Eduard Manet and James Whistler and his famous exuberance was memorably depicted in two terrific paintings by Giovanni Boldini and James Tissot. In 1870 John Lewis Brown was made a Knight of the Légion d\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\’Honneur and later won a gold medal in the Universal Exhibition in Paris.

A fine 17th century portrait oil on canvas depicting the important French poet and fabulist Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695). The painting was in the collection of a prominent English stately home for well over 100 years.

“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.

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.”
