Furze Cutters - 19th Century English Landscape Oil Painting Image

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. The painting was exhibited at the Royal Academy in London that same year, and hangs in an English Baroque style frame decorated in gold metal leaf.

 

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 just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

 

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.

Belle Femme en Déshabillé - 19th Century French Belle Epoque Portrait of Society Beauty Image

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 - Young Victorian Edwardian Society Beauty 1901 Image

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.

This is a fine late 18th century portrait oil painting of an aristocratic Georgian boy in red velvet coat with a very cheeky smile on his face attributed to the celebrated American portrait painter Gilbert Charles Stuart (1755-1828).

Gilbert Stuart is widely considered one of America’s foremost portraitists. Stuart’s most famous work is his portrait of George Washington that has appeared on the United States one-dollar bill for more than a century. Gilbert Stuart produced portraits of more than 1,000 people, including the first six US Presidents.

 

In 1775 Stuart left the US for Great Britain and lived and worked in London under the tutelage of Benjamin West (1738-1820), and within two years was exhibiting his own work at the Royal Academy. Between 1787 and 1793 he lived and worked Dublin, Ireland before returning to America.

 

Today, his work can be found in the collections of important galleries and museums throughout the United States and the United Kingdom; most notably the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the National Portrait Gallery in London.

Vincent van Gogh – today arguably the most famous painter in the world – considered Frank Holl to be a Master, and whilst living in London fastidiously cut out and collected Holl’s engravings published in The Graphic. Everyone even remotely interested in art should take some time to read the fascinating letters of Van Gogh (sent to his brother Theo and friend Anthon van Rappard).
